2nd Saturday Workshop: Design Your Own Zine
November 11 | 11 am - 3 pm
Learn how to make a Zine (or mini book) with a single sheet of folded 11 x 14 inch paper at our A-ma-ZINE! 2nd Saturday Workshop on November 11. Join visiting artist, disabilities advocate, designer, and educator Jennifer White-Johnson as she guides you through using simple materials like colored markers and pencils, magazine cut-outs, glue, and scissors to create your very own Zine. Whether you’re a Zine newbie or a seasoned creator, zines are a great way to express your disability joy through art, poems, writing, and musings.
