FREE, HANDS-ON ZINE-MAKING WORKSHOPS
Saturday, February 26th, The Adirondack Center for Writing will partner with The Link Arts Center (Plattsburgh) to offer two free classes: one for kids (ages 8-12) and one for teens (ages 13-17).
My First Fanzine
2/26 | 10 am – 12 pm | Ages 8 – 12
A fanzine (fan + zine) is a zine created to celebrate a particular cultural phenomenon (think of your favorite show, musician, video game, meme, etc.) and share with other fans. Students will create their own zine and make enough copies to share with their family and friends.
2/26 | 1 pm – 3 pm | Ages 13 – 17
Express yourself! Through collage, drawing, and juxtaposing images with text, students will learn to make their own small circulation, self-published, zines (short for fanzine or magazine).
These workshops focus on designing, creating, and printing zines.
What is a zine? It’s a small, unique, hand-made publication, perfect for teaching young artists/writers about design, self-expression, and publishing. The zine-maker is in control of every step of the production process, from idea-generation to printing and distribution–that’s empowerment through art! Students interested in writing, illustration, collage, book-making, print-making, yearbook, or graphic design will find themselves at home in these workshops.

BIG MOUNTAIN SKIING AT ITS BEST!
February 10, 7 pm
Adirondack Film is privileged to screen La Liste before its global release on 2/13/2022!
Big mountain skiers, and close friends, Jérémie Heitz and Sam Anthamatten, find beauty and display grace in the dangerous world of free-skiing. Follow them as they set off around the world to find the most awe-dropping, high-altitude peaks and mountain ranges that exceed 6000 metres, and do what they do best: ski.
Director, Eric Crosland states: “I chose to direct this film because I wanted to show people outside of the ski community how incredibly dangerous and challenging high altitude ski mountaineering is. While watching this film, I would like the viewer to experience the intense feelings, emotions, and decision-making of navigating, traveling, and skiing the highest altitude mountain ranges in the world.”
