This free-form, project-based class will take a deep dive into examining and restructuring the printed materials that surround us in our daily lives: takeout menus, calendars, food packaging, napkins, t-shirts, and more! How can these ubiquitous forms be used as inspiration for new hybrid art objects and zines? In this class, we’ll use humor and absurdity to make zines and collage our everyday experiences on paper. Using fast and easy DIY printing techniques like carbon paper transfers, Xerox printing, and a little screenprinting, we will duplicate forms as blank canvases for our own creative ideas. This class will also delve into WSW’s artist’s book collection to look at experimental book forms.
