PA Day: Acrylic Self Portraits (8-13yrs)

Friday June 9th 2017
9:00 am to 4:00 pm
Price: $ 65.00 CAD

This is a fun and creative one day workshop for young artists where they will paint an acrylic self portrait on canvas! We will look at examples of artist self portraits through history for inspiration. Taking an expressive approach to painting, we will explore composition, under-painting, colour mixing, and basic brushwork to create our finished masterpiece!

Artist Instructors: Heather Phillips



Send a photo to [email protected] a few days in advance in preparation for the workshop.

Photo guidelines: For this workshop, our focus we will be painting facial features.  Please be sure your chosen photo is of the face, neck and shoulders.  Choose an appropriate resolution to print at a 5×7 printed size.


Our full day program schedule consists of daily sketching exercises, 2hr morning and afternoon studio sessions, and various outdoor activities.  We believe an important part of the artistic process is having a good mental and physical balance.  Each day we will be going outside (weather permitting) to experience our neighbourhood and how it can inspire creativity!   Our camp takes place in our ARTiculations Second Floor Studio. In addition to our home base we also use our neighbourhood, frequenting local galleries and parks.

What to bring:
A full lunch, reusable water bottle and 2 snacks (nut free)
Clothes for getting messy!
Appropriate indoor & outdoor attire: sunscreen, hat, raincoat etc *NOTE: unless its -20, a monsoon or the end of the world, we go outside EVERY DAY.  Please come prepared and dressed appropriately! 
Appropriate footwear; close toed shoes for in the studio, walking/running shoes
A container on the last day to bring home artwork
