Self-Portraits For The Future
October 4, 2020 – October 10, 2020
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.
COURSE FEE: $600
