Program Overview

Program Description:

Alaska is the 49th State—the Last Frontier. Rich with nature, wildlife and natural resources, its vast unfettered wilderness offers once-in-a-lifetime travel experiences. Immerse yourself in all that Alaska has to offer, both on land and water. Each participant in this program will create, design and produce a travel zine that is based on experiences from this awe-inspiring wonderland. Using Adobe InDesign as the pre-press layout tool, projects will primarily consist of digital photography; however, writing, illustration and mixed-media (drawing, painting, collage) are also welcome. There will be daily reviews of images as well as design and layout tutorials, and hands-on assistance with the final production of the zine. Note: Participants must supply their own Macintosh laptop with Photoshop and InDesign software installed and a digital camera.

Participants will visit the stunning glaciers of Kenai Fjords National Park, one of only four remaining icefields, as well as the largest icefield entirely within U.S. borders. In Denali National Park, which is home to North America’s highest mountain peak, we will gain access to up-close views of wildlife such as grizzly bears, caribou and moose. As visitors to the Last Frontier, participants will also witness the impact of environmental changes on the wildlife populations. We will meet as a group prior to the trip for hands-on tutorials in bookmaking, Adobe InDesign and basic pre-press setup. During the program, images will be shared and critiqued on a regular basis and all participants will meet with the instructor individually. Completed travel zines must be submitted four weeks after the program ends. A final critique and presentation of all published works will be held.
