June/July RPL Teen Writers and Artists: Anima-zine Summer workshop
Teen Writers Group welcomes more visually focused communicators to our Summer 2021 sessions. In June and July we will fuse text and art as we create animal-related zines. Whether your style leans to manga, experimental art, or straight up text, zines are a fabulous way to express yourself! Well be emphasizing animals in conjunction with our Summer Reading theme: Tales and Tails. How you implement that theme is up to you. Do you have a passion for pigmy goats? Maybe you conceived a micro-story about an anthropomorphic anteater. Perhaps you are obsessed with manga manatees. Zines can accommodate non-fiction, stories, or comics, or whatever else you dream up. Come explore the basics of creating zines from creating layouts to folding tiny booklets from single sheets of paper to developing art and text that communicates your vision.
We will be doing 2 sessions:
June 12, 2 pm: Finding your vision and the Basics of Zines
July 10, 2 pm: Zipping it up, Sharing, and Next Steps
