Mini Zines: Things you Love

Date: 
Saturday, February 8, 2020
Time: 
11am - 2pm
Place: 
2 Park Drive. Stouffville

Make an accordion fold zine illustrating what you love! Draw your favourite people, places, activities, and things in a miniature DIY magazine. Join us to learn about zine-making and how to use collage and drawing to show your story. A variety of materials will be provided.

What is a zine? A zine is a DIY, self-published work typically in the form of a booklet. There are many types of zines: art zines, literary zines, food zines, social zines, and more. Zine-making is one of the most popular approaches to independent publishing, and focuses on strong ideas and freedom of artistic expression.

Here are some creative prompts to get you started:
What’s your favourite food to eat?
Draw your best friend!
Who do you love spending time with?

Or give your zine a theme:
Draw your top ten places to travel to!
What are some things you like doing in your free time?
Draw your favourite plants!

All ages and abilities welcome. Free! Donations gratefully accepted.

 

This event is part of Latcham Saturdays - weekly opportunities to learn, get creative and engage with art through hands-on art activities, art education, opening receptions, artist talks and demonstrations, tours, performances, and more!

Latcham Art Centre is proud to partner with the family of Catherine Anne Courtney to celebrate art and creativity with this exciting program. Catherine Anne Courtney (1944-2017) was a devoted lover of art, nature and poetry. Catherine liked to create paintings of nature when she had the opportunity. She was also a collector of rocks, stones, oak and red maple leaves from wherever she travelled. She often visited the gallery and loved to engage in conversation with anyone about the artists and the subject of the artworks. Latcham Art Centre is pleased to recognize Catherine Anne Courtney and the support of her family.
