The Vera Project

A 3-week, introductory course for writing, creating, and printing your very own 8-page zine.

Get your art and ideas into the world with zines. We’ll look at zine history, structure options, topics and distribution. Students will work with the instructor through concept, development, and execution and walk through the printing process. Students will make at least one simple zine and work on developing larger ones. Students get help during the three weeks with print files, proofreading and more.
