Join instructor Joy and make a self-portrait. A self-portrait can show people what you look like, but it can also show them who you are, on the inside! Artists will use recycled materials and learn how to construct a two-sided 3D portrait. Side one will allow artists to learn how to illustrate their physical appearances; the second side allows for self-expression to show who they in ways outside of the portraiture norms. Artists will get to celebrate who they are!
