ZINE WORKSHOP with Morgan Acheson
Whether you have been making art your entire life or you just picked it up since grade school, artists of all ages are welcome to come wonder, discover, and relish in the act of making art together even though we are apart. In this workshop, you will be given step-by-step instructions to constructing, designing, and producing an original zine.
Materials: At the very least you will need a sheet of printer paper and a pen or pencil, but you are encouraged and welcome to think creatively and to not limit yourself to traditional means of making art especially if your materials at home are limited!
1 sheet of printer paper
pen or pencil
access to camera and/or scanner
mixed media paper or bristol board
paint and brushes
scissors and 2D and/or 3D found objects to create rubbings or assemblage collage
