Reflections of an artist -- creating imaginative self-portraits that show character and personality through the use of various water media. Rembrant, Van Gogh, Picasso, to name a few, all painted self-portraits.

This workshop will explore the use of value, color, line, texture, and pattern using watercolors, inks, watercolor pencils and crayons, and acrylics. Participants are encouraged to give themselves artistic license to express their “inner selves.”
