Express Yourself | Huddersfield

with Helen Sergeant
Self Portraits:  Who we are, what we do, how we would like others to see us, our identities. We will look at a range of artists self-portraits for inspiration such as Frida Khalo, Cindy Sherman and Vincent Van Gogh. We will begin by using smart phone cameras and small hand held mirrors to capture some initial ideas about yourself and/ or you can bring in photographs, personal ephemera and clothes from home to dress up and explore/ express your identities. We will be working towards making life size self-portraits on big pieces of paper but you can work small if you want. We will be working with ink, pencil, charcoal, graphite and water colour. 

Sessions take place at:
HOOT Creative Arts
Bates Mill, Milford Street
