The Art of the Zine with Guest Artist Anna Mudd
October 6, 2012
A zine (pron. "zeen") is a DIY magazine, independently produced and self-published. Zine enthusiasts typically build these rogue publications as purely creative, non-profit endeavors, because they’re passionate about sharing stories, information, opinion, and artwork—or all of the above.
Join guest instructor Anna Mudd in the Studio on Saturday, October 6, to learn about zines, how they relate to Isabella Stewart Gardner's albums, and collaborate in the creation of a Gardner Museum-inspired zine. In three sessions, Anna will discuss the origin of zines, and participants will view reproductions of Isabella Gardner's albums and guest books, explore themes of travel, personal narrative, mail correspondence, and collecting. Sessions begin at 11 am, 1 pm, and 3 pm.
