La Zubia's shop windows will feature a unique Christmas decoration: Manga, or American-style cartoon characters, that were created by students at the local Comic School. It is the only one in the Province.
Twentyteen-year-olds aged between 14 and 20 decorated windows at local businesses to promote Christmas shopping. Each La Zubia window was transformed into a work of art by the twenty participants.
From this week to next January 7, Superman, Koro Sensei, or other characters from 'South Park,' will be the mainstays of La Zubia's shop windows. This includes opticians, greengrocers, hardware stores, academies, and appliance stores.
Antonio Arquelladas (Youth Councilor, Zubiense City Council) thanks the group of young people for their "artistic skills in the service of local commerce, altruistically, and selflessly." They are a source for pride in the Youth area and the reason that La Zubia has another attraction this Christmas is because of them. He says that the young people set a good example by their hard work and commitment.
This year marks the tenth anniversary of La Zubia Comic School. It is the only municipal school in the province. It is located at Casa de la Juventud. It currently hosts fifty students from all ages. They can learn and create their creations for free between October and June. There are intermediate, advanced, and initial drawing classes.
Puri Lopez, the mayor of La Zubia thanked Javier Peregrina (a professor at School of Comics), "for the remarkable work he does avec these young people who, thanks to this initiative, will see their work displayed throughout Christmas.
The Department of Youth also organizes a contest via social networks, so residents of La Zubia are able to vote for their favourite shop window by visiting the City Council's Facebook page. This initiative was also captured on video.
