SPRING BREAK ART CAMP – Create a Zine with Rhonda McCormack

Calling all aspiring illustrators ages 8-13!  Students will have fun creating and illustrating their very own zine at this Spring Break art camp at the Shemer Art Center.

A zine is a small, self-published book that can be easily reproduced and shared. Students in this camp will conceptualize, design and illustrate their own, one of a kind zine and go home at the end of camp with not only a copy of their zine but also one from each of their fellow students.  Over the course of camp students will learn more about the elements of art, world-building, hand-lettering, collage, and how to use these elements alongside their narrative ideas to create a thematic, unique zine!

Sign up today to watch your young artists become publishers in this Spring art camp.

All materials will be included. Please pack and send a snack & water bottle with your child.

The Zentangle Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns.  It increases focus and creativity, and provides artistic satisfaction, along with an increased sense of well-being. Almost anyone can use it to create beautiful images. The Zentangle Method is enjoyed all over the world, across a wide range of skills, interests, and ages.

This class will provide beginners with a background in the history of Zentangle, introduce the eight basic steps of the method, and provide exposure to associated vocabulary and tools used.  Students will be immersed in creating actual Zentangle tiles and leave with a clear understanding that “Anything is possible…one stroke at a time.” In addition, students will be introduced to “string theory” and how to create a basic string.

All students will receive a mini Zentangle kit, which includes a Black Pigma Micron 01, mini graphite pencil, tortillion, 5 original 3 ½” square Zentangle® tiles, and muslin bag.

Students 10 – 16 years old
