Connect your creativity to the natural world and make a zine with a Caldera artist. Space is limited and
registration is required.
Join artist Demian DinéYazhi´ for an intro to zine making for teens and adults. Zines are a great way to get
your ideas into the world using text, images, collage, and drawing. For this workshop, we'll focus on making
zines around the broad theme of plants. Bring any content (text, poems, images, plants, etc.) that you'd like
to include in your zine or use the materials we have onsite. We'll bring lots of plants found in Central Oregon
for inspiration too. Connect your creativity to the natural world!
Demian DinéYazhi´ is a Portland-based Diné transdisciplinary artist born to the clans Naasht'ézhí Táb??há
(Zuni Clan Water's Edge) and Tódích'íí'nii (Bitter Water). He received his BFA in Intermedia Arts from
Pacific Northwest College of Art in 2014. Demian is the founder and director of the artist/activist initiative,
