The UN-SELFIE: Reinventing the Self-Portrait Collage + Mixed Media Workshop
Friday, August 7th, 2020 from 1:00 to 3:30pm | $75 + tax
Self portraits are not Selfies. They are beautiful and revealing. Good ones are difficult to make.
By definition, a Selfie is a self-portrait photograph rather than drawn or painted or sculpted. They tend to be casual shots of self at an event or just for fun, while self-portraits are more methodical. Self portrait is more authentic self-representation, an expression of how one feels about oneself.
We can modify and even use Selfies to become a fully realized, intimate Self- Portrait.
The “Un-Selfie” Workshop is an opportunity to reflect on autobiographical, narrative, personal, and iconic imagery, physical, and emotional aspects of self. Working with photos, photo copies, collage, drawing, and text, we will create a personal expression to re-invent the Self-Portrait.
Our workshop will cover: Choosing a substrate, mounting, priming, creating smooth and textured surfaces, adding color. Come see how these methods and media work together to bring a rich, atmospheric, painterly quality to your imagery.
