Few pictures through the ages are more honest or experimental than self portraits. Self portraiture can nobly and expressively convey the deepest feelings with sincerity. The mirror enables an artist to capture their most personal view of reality. The degree of comfort with which self portraits capture physical features, environmental conditions and the artist’s inner world can leave a faithful record of self scrutiny through the creative process. Facing one’s moods, expressions and shadow, the artist can go beyond likeness and represent inner turmoil, inner spirit, and higher possibility.

This workshop will allow the exploration of various mediums, examine the history of self-portraiture, offer immersion into the soul through self-revelation, and address philosophically the nature of the self.
