Make Zines & Play Surrealist Games with artist Sue Johnson image

Get creative at 3S Artspace! Acclaimed artist Sue Johnson will lead participants in the creation of zine miniature books while playing the games that 20th century Surrealists invented to unlock the imagination.

A combination of words and images will be explored, plus the use of collage as a method to create unexpected new images and stories.

  • No previous art experience is needed.
  • Basic art supplies and collage materials are provided for all participants.
  • Participants are encouraged to bring their own favorite art supplies (such as markers, colored pencils, collage materials like paper scraps, postcards, and/or photographs – no wet paint).

About artist Sue Johnson:

Sue Johnson (American, born San Francisco, CA, 1957) is an internationally exhibited artist whose works combine installation, painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, found objects and artist books. She earned an MFA in Painting and Printmaking from Columbia University and a BFA in Painting from Syracuse University, with additional study in London and Florence with Syracuse University. Johnson's artworks and multiple media installations are revisionist in method creating plausible fictions that run both parallel and counter to canonical histories. Projects focus on topics that include the origins of museums, cabinets of curiosities and “lost” collections, the picturing of nature and women, the domestic universe and consumer culture – and collectively, defy easy categorization.
