Zines: a Self-Portrait in 6 Panels

Wednesday, July 22, 2020

Artist Breena Nuñez will guide you in creating a mini-comic all about you--and what makes you who you are.

July is International Zine Month! Join pro artist Breena Nuñez as she leads "A Self-Portrait in 6 Panels."

Breena will guide folks to creating self-portraits in the form of a mini-comic. Come prepared to draw a cartoon version of yourself, as well as the people, places, or things that helped create who you are as a unique person. 

This event is for ages 9-adult.
