This is an ongoing fun series of minizines about art making. Join in on as many or as few as you wish. :)

Each time you join, choose another topic so that you create and receive a wide range of minizines about art making.

Your minizine should be made using a single sheet of letter-size paper (8.5x11 or A4) folded to 8 pages. You can do more pages if you want, and you can stitch or assemble your zine in other ways if you wish, but 8 pages is the minimum.

For a quick and easy video on making a minizine, look here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q5oD8EyZHOU

Your minizine can be colour, black-and-white, use pictures or text, or anything you want to explain your art making. Newbies welcome! We all had to start somewhere, but please fill out your profiles. I'll be checking before assigning partners. No unexplained 1’s or 3’s. I'll angel if I need to, but flakers will be excluded from future ArtMakers Minizine Swaps.

I believe everyone has something to share about their art making experience! If you can't think of your own art making idea, you can choose from the topics listed in the comments section below. So have fun, do good work & be creative!
