All materials included.

Selfie Portrait Painting with Natasha Jabre in the Activity Room

Who is that in the mirror? Don’t miss this imaginative and interactive Selfie Portrait Workshop with figure painter Natasha Jabre! After a series of warm-ups and exercises, students will gain a better understanding of portraiture and painting from life. Participants will learn how to observe, record, and structure a self portrait that reflects their likeness and personality. Students will take the process a step further and enjoy personalizing their portraits by adding distinctive features, clothing items, and real or fictional accessories, while embracing their uniqueness.
