In this workshop, students will have the chance to create a self-portrait that is influenced by a master artist. Students will briefly learn about artists from the past to contemporary artists.
At the end of the workshop, there will be a self portrait that can be hung up for the family or given to a loved one!
Learning and Creating: Self-Portrait Art
One week only!
Class on Monday, November 1st from 4-5pm
Meet the Team
Teresa is in their junior year at SUNY New Paltz. They are studying Painting and Drawing, but also enjoy printmaking and are learning ceramics. Teresa’s art focuses on gender identity and other current political issues. They hope their art can help make someone else feel comfortable with their own identity and help others understand different LGBTQIA+ labels. They hope this workshop will inspire people to create their own work and research artists students are inspired by.
Allison is in her Senior year, studying Art Education at SUNY New Paltz. She has a concentration in drawing and painting, as well as a Deaf Studies minor. Often creating art centered around emotions, she finds art does a wonderful job of self-expression especially when words don't quite do the trick. Allison loves how art can harness all sorts of emotions and turn them into something wonderfully beautiful. She hopes this workshop will help others not only gain a better understanding of art but also a better understanding of the role it plays in society. Allison has run this workshop in the Spring of 2021, and is excited to be back.
