Zines are self-published works of text and illustration with small circulations. Their traditional handmade nature encourages authors to share big stories in a simple, intimate format.
In this 1.5 hour workshop, attendees will create an 8-page zine using a single sheet of paper and their drawing materials of choice. Attendees will be encouraged to record this (or another) moment in their lives through color exploration, introspective prompts, and methods for simple storytelling.
