Saturday – 10:00 am– 7:00 p.m.
Sunday – 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m

Chattacon’s Art Show is blessed with a large enough room to offer space for an Artist’s Nook.  This will be a space where you the artist can set up and draw, paint, sculpt, work on that current project.  Also in the Nook we would like to offer small, mini-workshops. 

Stay tuned to this space for Workshops that will be offered when we are closer to the convention.
