The Union for Contemporary Art is proud to partner with Omaha Zine Fest on a series of workshops leading up to Omaha Zine Fest. During this workshop participants will learn about the process of creating comics and zines. Participants will also discuss storyboarding, different ways to bind and fold zines, useful tools, and design considerations like margins, movement, perspective, and setting. Participants will get to practice storyboarding your own short comic and learn helpful tips and tricks for scanning, digitally editing, and printing as well.

REMINDER: Every Thursday, The Union's Youth program hosts Youth Open Studios. Young artists ages 5-15 are invited to participate in self-directed studio time from 4-8pm. Come paint, draw, read, play games, or do homework in a fun environment. Participants can create projects inspired by our exhibitions with guidance from staff who will introduce a new project each week. Cost is FREE and no advanced sign up is required. Participation is capped at 15, on a first-come-first served basis.  

Youth Open Studios was established to reduce barriers to participation in our Thursday Co-Op workshops for adults, creating an opportunity for young people to engage in hands-on art-making while their parents or guardians do the same. For more information, visit u-ca.org/youth
