Making a self-portrait is a powerful creative process that can give you insight into how you see yourself and how you think others see you. Rather than working toward a perfect “likeness” of the self, we will be focusing on the use of colors, lines, and shapes to create abstract representations of one-and-only you in a playful, exploratory process.

Please note that for your safety, capacity is limited to 10 participants per session. Tickets must be purchased in advance.
