Zines are terrific avenues for having others see your work in an inexpensive print medium. This series will have us design and build a zine collaboratively as a group on a theme that you will designate. Students will record new images with their cameras (phone, DSLR, point-and-shoot) and work to select images, sequence, and create mock layouts for the zine. Working with layout in Adobe Photoshop/InDesign will be demonstrated. Students will receive feedback from peers and instructor on their layouts and ultimately collaborate to realize a finished zine. The zine will be printed at a print house and mailed to each participant.
Students will need a solid internet connection to attend class through Zoom with video and audio capacity, as well as basic computer skills, access to software to process their images, and the ability to upload them to a designated space for the instructor to share within the classroom.
