BUILD-A-WORLD ZINE Workshop with Sarah Welch and Zine Fest Houston
Saturday, May 20, 2017
2 - 5 PM
Lawndale Art Center Classroom
Join artist Sarah Welch and Zine Fest Houston for a zine-making workshop focused on worldbuilding. Whether you're a high fantasy novelist, poet, comix-maker, or visual artist with a love of narrative imagery, worldbuilding is a great way to begin conceptualizing a project. In this workshop, participants will learn tips for creating a distinct sense of place and make their own, original one-page zine exploring a slightly tweaked or wholly new reality.
All materials will be provided, but personal collage materials and drawing tools are welcome. This event is FREE and family friendly!
