How do artists see themselves? Throughout history, lots of ways! From Van Gogh and Frida Kahlo to contemporary artist Njideka Akunyili Crosby, artists have always found new ways to express themselves. In this class, students will begin by exploring emotions and facial features, and move on to expressing their persona in more unconventional ways. Paint your own large-scale self portrait, design your own symbol, and get the chance to explore a variety of identities along the way!
