In this introductory art course, students will create their own zine with screen printing and letterpress techniques. Students will gain hands-on experience in crafting their original narrative writing or poetry with the combination of illustration and image. Using quantitative reasoning, the production of the hand-made processes will guide students to discover technical advancements in their work. In this community-based studio environment, students will collaborate in practice and learn to further build their presentation skills with an understanding of social responsibility as an image-maker and author. At the end of the quarter, students will present and participate in a group critique to expand their critical observational skills and visual literacy.
