This is My Story

Friday, June 25 at 1 PM PST

Everyone has a story. What is your story? In this program, participants joined C.O.L.A. 2021 Visual Art Fellow Phung Huynh to learn about how her work unpacks complicated experiences as a Southeast Asian refugee that influence how she constructs her personal narrative through art. Huynh facilitated a guided workshop where participants created small zines about their own stories. Co-hosted by the Los Angeles Public Library – Central Branch division.

8 ½” x 11” paper



Scissors or x-acto knife

Artmaking materials that participants would like to bring (pens, color pencils, markers, paint, glue, glitter, etc.)

Collage materials (photographs, textured paper, food packaging, magazines, etc.)
