Zines are both a focused way to explore studio art and a great outlet for personal views to become communal information. Using a field trip to the Zine Collection at the St. Louis Public Library as inspiration, participants choose subject matter as the focus for their work. Participants experiment with a variety of materials to express personal views through visuals and text. Mediums may include drawing, printmaking, collage, mixed media, photography and photomontage. Each participant also learns saddle book binding to complete their zine and will leave with a copy of their work to add to their portfolio. Field trip included.
