Journaling Journey From A-Zine!

FREE Summer Program for Elementary School-Aged Children

A is art + W is for words + Y is for YOU + Z is for zine!

Looking for a low-key way to commune with creativity this summer? Join Inlandia on a Journaling Journey in June!

Learn how to make a DIY zine, then fill it up with the alphabet and your imagination. With optional Monday through Thursdays check-ins and Friday read-arounds, you will soon be an indie author with your very own book!

Led by a team of experienced young authors under the guidance of Inlandia Institute core staff, this program is free for elementary school-aged youth.

How it works:

During the month of June, a new daily prompt will be emailed each day. Complete at your own pace! Join us for the daily check-ins or just the weekly read-arounds, or participate completely via email.

Parent/guardian registration required. If registering multiple children, only one form is required.

Artists create the work that is exhibited, collected, and written about in various publications. This workshop will give participants a basic understanding about the role of the artist in society, how to prepare questions for the artist, and how to organize those responses into an artist profile essay ready for publication. Saturdays: July 9, 16, and 23, from 4:00-5:30 PM (PT).
