Project Description

Program Description
This is a versatile supplementary class designed to complement standard curriculum. In this fun class, we will explore a variety of literary and visual techniques as students will be given the opportunity to transform personal reflections and/or other standard lesson plans into collages and zines.

Final Product
A Collage or Zine, Digital or Physical, that will either artistically represent a subject they are studying in school or a personal diary style reflection of themselves.
