Featured in Arts Perspective from Colorado Arts Perspective Article The Northwest New Mexico Arts Council supports Blended Zine the publication by teens for teens in San Juan County and supports the program that was initiated and supported by the Farmington Public Library. Arts learning experiences can alter the attitudes of young people toward themselves and each other. The publication is by teens for teens, which provides an introduction into future careers in the workforce.
The teen volunteers give back to the community. Blended Zine helps to decrease youth involvement in delinquent behavior and improve youth attitudes about themselves and the future. Blended Zine provides an opportunity to youth in the juvenile detention center and many have been published and it has affected them lives in a positive way. Teens evaluate the work that goes in Blended Zine, through mentorship from the arts council board who volunteer their time to share techniques on marketing their work to sell as an artist and simple things like providing a workshop to share how professional matting can be displayed in the community. Blended Zine displayed and sold original art at the annual High Desert Fine Art Festival and will continue to be part of the show that is important for the sustainability of the arts in Northwest New Mexico. Not many people can say that the Lt. Governor has sent a message through Facebook to get the teen artwork in his office. Stop by and check it out at the roundhouse and visit Blended Zine for more details.
