New Zine Class offers Conceptual Development and a Variety of Skills
The Academy of Art is excited to offer a new class for Spring 2018: Zines: Reproduction Techniques for Communication and Expression. Zines are self-published small-run magazines, often created by artists, photographers, illustrators or anyone interested in exploring an idea and publishing it on their own.
Zines provide a forum to explore alternative ideas in a print format. Communities of artists and zinesters put on annual events such as the SF Zine Fest every September in Golden Gate Park, the New York Art Book Fair, and the San Francisco Art Book Fair. Artists and publishers come from all over the world to sell, buy and trade zines.
The Zines class gives students an opportunity to explore their current technical field, but also explore other ideas and avenues of content development. The class will use Xerography and Risography as well as collage, typography, design layout, photography, illustration, fiction and non-fiction writing to develop ideas and create zines.
