Award-winning artist, Alexis Marie Chute will share the broad creative and expressive possibilities of portraiture and self-portraiture. Through many examples, discover how portraits can visualize the often inexpressible parts of the human experience, making seen what is frequently unseen. Discover how different art materials and techniques can communicate various mental and emotional states, plus unexpected ways to combine these into complex and emotive portraits. We live in an age where empathy and compassion are needed more than ever. Through an exploration of portraiture and self-portraiture, learn how this artistic genre can grapple with coming of age, identity, mental health, struggle, and triumph.
