Discover the many ways to represent a person’s persona! In this mixed media class, young artists will be challenged to create portraits through a variety of 2D and 3D art projects. After a series of brainstorming and sketching exercises, they will experiment with art’s fundamental elements including scale, color, and texture. Teaching Artists will introduce students to contemporary portrait artists such as Mickalene Thomas, Cindy Sherman, and Elia Alba. Students can use their new skills to capture friends, family, or even their own characters!
