Self(ie) Portrait: A workshop on portraiture
A workshop over two consecutive Saturdays:

Express and capture yourself through photography, illustration, and collage. This two-part workshop introduces kids to the history of portraiture, leading up to the more recent selfie. Children will have the chance to explore portraits through studio photography, illustration, and collage. Working closely with the workshop leaders, kids will work with different equipment, including cameras, lighting, mirrors, and paint.
This workshop is programmed in conjunction with the exhibition Ten Stories from the Sursock Museum Collection.
