Join us to make a “self-portrait” of your inner self using methods of “blind drawing,” which involves closing your eyes and learning to using your other senses.

We will discuss the differences between our “inner” and “outer” selves, how they do or do not “match up” to each other.  The workshop will provide an opportunity for you to explore what the self is and how we define ourselves to ourselves and to others.

We will utilize black scratch-off boards in order to create unexpected artistic results.

No previous art experience is required.
