A 2-Day Online Workshop!

Tuesdays, February 22 and March 1, 6pm-9pm ET via Zoom


About this Workshop:

In this workshop, students will create and digitally publish a zine with at least 8-pages. Students will gain graphic design and publishing skills, while creating something that is meaningful to them. After the zine layouts are finalized using the free online software Canva, the content will be uploaded to an interactive magazine publishing platform to bring it to life. The zine page can be drawn in any media that students are comfortable with, such as pen and paper, then photographed to be added as a page; digital drawing and painting programs like Procreate or Photoshop; or they can even use the tools in Canva as a way to create their designs. 

This two-part workshop will include a session on content development and a second session addressing layout and digital publishing. This online class requires students to have a computer or tablet to access publishing platforms, as well as reliable internet access to join the class on Zoom.

Level: Beginner – no experience necessary!

Registration closes February 12, 2022 to allow time for students to gather/purchase their materials. With your registration you’ll receive the full materials list (with helpful links if applicable) to purchase your items, any helpful handouts about the process, as well as a quick 1-page “how-to” on downloading and using the Zoom video app.
