Join us for an introduction to zine-making and self-publishing with artist and publisher Cóilín O’Connell.
Work with the artist to explore and produce an artist zine. Looking at the zine as a medium for the display and distribution of art, story telling, self expression and cultural criticism through collage, drawing and writing. The zine can be a container for art work you have already made during the Summer School, drawings and writing you have previously made or an opportunity for intuitive collage experimentation.
