Defining Yourself: Collage as Self Portrait

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this workshop, we will explore self-affirming identity formation by creating a visual self-portrait of who we are as creative workers, what we want to be, and/or how we see ourselves. We will reference the art of Frida and Ana Mendieta as examples of the power of self-portrait as a political, emotional and spiritual tool of self-representation. Participants will create a self-portrait, mixed-media collage through paper and/or photography mediums.
