Create an Art and Literary Journal

Teacher: Adriana Yugovich, English

School: Humanitas Academy of Art & Technology

Project Goal(s): Students will launch a 32-page school art & literary journal and learn the process of publishing from concept and editing to design, layout and promotion. 

Description of Activities 


The Art and English departments joined forces to create a new class called Media Flex, focusing on exploring the process of creating, editing and publishing creative content to be shared beyond the classroom. Students took on editorial roles, engaged in art and writing critiques, and utilized Adobe Photoshop and InDesign to bring their new publication to life, then organized a book release/open mic event at a local cafe where students read their work and facilitated dialogue about arts advocacy with the community. 

ETA funds were used for the cost of printing the journals.
