Participants will learn and practice collage techniques with the goal of creating spreads and motifs for a zine project. The collage portion of the class will emphasize collage as a creatively expanding exercise for artists, a tool for mocking up and creating novel imagery, and explore the relationship between collage and digital media. Participants will also be shown examples and given the basics of visual composition for images and for time-based print design (i.e. magazines and chapbooks). With the instructor's support, participants will learn about formatting, printing and binding zines from start to finish. No experience necessary, all are welcome!
