Abbott Elementary Will School San Diego Comic-Con with Fan Experience — And Wants Your Art [UPDATE July 13]

Thanks to TV Guide, we now know that school will be in session for Abbott Elementary fans at San Diego Comic-Con in an immersive fan experience, “New Teacher Dis-Orientation”.

Fans will roam the halls of Abbott Elementary, where they can visit set recreations and earn their own staff credentials. Sets include Principal Ava’s desk and Janine’s classroom. Attending “students” will have the opportunity to donate to real teachers in need through curated Scholastic wish lists.

TV Guide’s illustrated cover art, by Cora Jaeschke, will be featured in the hallway alongside the original art that was submitted by fans during the Abbott Elementary Fan Art Contest.

The experience will also feature screenings of fan-favorite episodes, live performances, including a professional step dance crew and a double dutch rope team, plus giveaways, and more.

School starts Thursday, July 21 in front of the Hilton San Diego Bayfront.


School is about to be in session. ABC comedy series Abbott Elementary is holding a fan experience at San Diego Comic-Con this year, though there are not currently details on what that entails.

What we do know, though, is that you can “enroll” in a fan art contest, and if your art is selected, it will be on display at said fan experience. You can enter between now and July 10, and entries can consist of jpg’s, png’s, gif’s, or PDF’s.

Each of the Grand Prize Winners will have their artwork displayed at the event and will receive an Abbott Elementary t-shirt.

There’s still no word yet on if the series, which stars Quinta Brunson (who also created the series), Tyler James Williams, Janelle James, Lisa Ann Walter, Chris Perfetti, and Sheryl Lee Ralph, will be getting a panel — but it seems more likely than ever.

You can find more information, and enter, on their website.
