Zines using Adobe Photoshop
The way Zines came about was very anti-establishment and rebellious. In a time where censoring was heavily enforced, getting published became increasingly difficult. That’s when self-publishing came about in the form of zines! They were typically made through cut and paste collage work and markers. Not at Mind+Hand!
In this program, you will use Adobe Photoshop to digitally create zines using a topic of your choice.
We will explore and learn the following:
The Basics of Adobe Photoshop
Concepts and Skills in Writing, Comics, & Drawing
Creating your own Zine to be distributed in your community and at Mind+Hand
Students will design zines and use MIND+HAND’s laptops and printers to make them a reality. Gain skills in graphic design, writing, and communications that can be used for all sorts of things like blogging, web design, and creating logos.
BONUS! Students that successfully complete the class will be certified as Design “Experts” at MIND+HAND. With a short training after the course, you will be certified to use the X-Carve and Vinyl Cutter at M+H’s Makerspace without direct supervision from M+H Staff.
