Free Art Friday is a movement where you'll take create a small piece of art and put it in a public place on a Friday for anyone to take.
In this swap, you will send one of your own zines to one partner.
A zine is homemade self-published miniature magazine that has pretty much anything you want inside. (There are tons of tutorials on how to fold them.) Zines are also usually a photocopy of the original.
The zine can be on any subject as long as it's FAMILY FRIENDLY, but try to make it something anyone would want to read/look through. It can be any size, but the standard is 8 sheets from one page.
Once you've received a zine from your partner, take a copy of one of your own. Put both zines in a baggie labeled "Free Art Friday - This is for You!" Put a note inside requesting the receiver to take a picture and post it on the Free Art Friday Facebook wall. On a Friday, put the baggie in any public place. (You may want to do it inside because of the weather.) Examples: park bench, library desk, coffee shop, etc. I would not recommend the floor/ground because it is likely to get thrown away.
The Free Art Friday portion of this swap won't play into the rating, it's just a fun post-swap activity.
Your partner may want to keep a copy of your zine too keep as well as the one he/she gives away. Know that your zine may be copied once without your permission.
This is a regional USA only swap.
I am happy to angel if necessary, but I hope it won't be!
