Self-Portraits For The Future

October 4, 2020 – October 10, 2020

Christine Garvey

In this workshop students will examine the self-portrait to reflect on identity and experience within a context. 2D and 3D material demonstrations presented include alginate mold-making, plaster-casting, photocopy-transferring and mixed media techniques. These methods give participants a jump-start into drawing form and reflecting on the world around them. Each technique is paired with a conceptual exercise allowing students to discover the history of self-portraiture and to capture something personal and universal about a specific time period. Open to all skill levels.


Christine Garvey most recently was an assistant professor of Practice and area head of the 2D Art Foundation at the University of Texas at Austin. She received her MFA from Concordia University Montreal and a BFA from Washington University in St Louis. Garvey received a 2016 Fulbright Research Grant from the Italian Commission, Concordia University’s Faculty of Fine Arts Fellowship, and a City of Austin Community Initiatives Grant. She divides her time between Austin, New York and Italy.
