Flywheel will be hosting a Zine Camp for kids this August!
At zine camp, we’re going to learn different ways to make our own zines. You can put anything in a zine! You can find drawings, poems, photos, facts, lists, and stories — sometimes all in the same zine! People usually make a zine about one topic at a time, but as many people can work on the same zine as you want. One person can make a zine by themselves, or twenty people can make a zine together, with everybody making a different page or piece of a page.
Darla Stabler and Knox Huppert both graduated from Hampshire College with degrees in political theory, book arts, and publishing. Darla is excited to share her knowledge and love of illustration, and has facilitated many arts centered workshops for youth and adults alike. She has published her own picture book, as well as had work featured in a wide range of zines! Knox has worked with youth of all ages in a variety of settings from overnight camps, after school arts programming, and support staff at both elementary and high schools. They have taught courses for middle schoolers on community building and zine making, as well as had work published in a variety of zines, online, and print publications.
Two different one-week sessions will be offered. Session 1 is from August 15-19 for ages 8-11, and Session 2 is from August 22- 27 for ages 12-17.
