Course Description:

Be bold, be powerful, be you! Tell your story in this zine workshop for teens. Students bring photos, cut up magazines, draw, rip, paint, or write about what’s important to them. In this workshop, students will generate ideas to tell their stories in handmade artist books. As a group, we’ll explore storyboards, collage, and image transfer techniques, then bring everything together with simple bookbinding methods. The creative process will also address ways to reproduce zines as a small-run publication that students can distribute and share among family, friends, and fans.
