What is a “ZINE”?
Zines are self-published, small-circulation publications often dealing with niche topics.
Class One: (February 11th) This class teaches students about the history of zines and zine culture, techniques for construction, and allows students the opportunity to craft a zine of their very own. Types of zines include commentary, fanzines, activity books, poetry, comics, and more. Sign up here.
Class Two: (February 18th) Participants will have the opportunity to work continually on their personal zine projects throughout the course, or to create other publications. Instructor will provide inspiration examples from the Atlanta Zine Library, demonstrating different styles and works. Computers will be provided should participants wish to learn light Adobe software skills.
Class Three: (February 25th) This final class provides a chance for participants to further develop their zines through more complex techniques. New participants will also have the opportunity to learn skills from prior sessions. Sign up here.
