  1. hello my name is Acacia Wrack & I live in the Isis Program & i was wondering if i could show some of my art work here, my dream is to have my artwork on a street build broad & for people to look at it everyday and also having that feeling, saying “I made/created that art piece” it would mean the world to me!

    • Hi Acacia:

      It’s great to hear from you!

      Zine Project Seattle would love to post artwork from you.

      Please email me (Zine Instructor Shaun) at shaunm@ccsww.org and include some of your work in an attachment.

      Or… stop by University District Youth Center (UDYC) 4516 15th ave. N.E. Seattle, WA 98105 between 1-3:30pm, during our daily drop-in and we can do some scanning and posting together if you want.

      I look forward to seeing some of your stuff.

      Thanks again for reaching out.

      SM
