The Zine Collection

…at Jacksonville’s Main Library

Zine Machine at Gregory Drive Elementary!

Posted by Josh Jubinsky on May 31, 2011

Thanks to art teacher Ed Saulk and media specialist Jack Betancourt, we got to spend nearly a full school day at Gregory Drive Elementary teaching six sessions of Zine Machine classes to 3rd – 5th graders.   The all day Arts Festival event they put on was amazing and we were very glad to be a part of it.


Some classes got inspired by Chris Van Dusen’s “If I Built a Car” before designing a car of their own, while other classes reviewed the elements of superheroes and villains before designing one of their own.  They even had our “Read Zines” poster up in the media center!

The material the kids created will be used for the next 5 issues of Zine Machine, available next month in the Main Library’s Children’s Department.   The library at Gregory Drive was also very excited about cataloging the new issues for it’s students to check out.   The kids were also very enthusiastic about coming to the public library and checking out the zine they contributed too.  Everyone wins!
