A Woman’s Journey Workshop

An Inward Journey with Explorative Self Portrait

In this 9 weeks workshop we will dive into an exploration through a creative self portrait building. The intention of this play will be to learn how to draw a portrait with will all its hidden challenges.

 In the first 3 weeks we will learn how to take a successful self portrait and then use certain applications  and overlays to tweak it to our liking and the choose to work with. We will learn how to draw different angles of the face and how to the transfer our sketch to canvas to complete our painting at the final stage

 In the next 3 weeks we will then play with symbols and fun techniques to lay the ground for our canvas. We will use stencils, markers , ephemera, different marking tools and stamps to have a starting surface that really inspires us to create.

In the last stage we will complete our painting. We will learn the basis of  composition so that our portrait feels like its in the right place. We will then use more creative play to fuse our background and portrait together so it tells a whole story. It does not matter if you have any particular story to tell, it will always show through in the end.

Class Structure
