Zines have a longstanding tradition as DIY literature and art. In this 2-day class writers and artists devise and create an array of zines and one-of a kind chapbooks. Working with collage, typewriter, sewing machine, stamping, and other design techniques, this generative workshop helps teens bring together ideas, images, and stories to communicate to a wider audience the analog way.
*Sliding scale tuition: Part of our mission, as a non-profit, is to create access to art education for everyone in our community. To this end, we offer sliding scale tuition on select workshops at TNL. Lower pricing is available for those facing financial hardships. Other students may choose to 'pay it forward' by choosing a higher price than the suggested cost, thereby helping a student in need.
