Event Details:

Tuesday, October 26th in Garrison @ Garrison Arts Center, 6:30-9:30pm

23 Garrison Landing, Garrison NY – 845.424.3960

Create an elegant, elongated, self-portrait in the style of Italian artist Modigliani.

We will all look at ourselves in a mirror and imagine that we are seeing ourselves through a filter that stretches our features. I will guide everyone through the process using oil pastels. There is no “perfect” here, the more stretched out and exaggerated the better! Bold colors and color mixing is encouraged. After that it is time to collage. Using a variety of papers, stamps, stickers and other art materials create a quilt like background. Use words, phrases, images, and drawings and pictures to describe yourself and what you like. Even better, describe each other! These pieces are then glued in a patchwork pattern around the portrait creating a totally unique expression of self.

  • All participants will be required to wear masks indoors.

  • Participants 12 and older must be vaccinated, vaccination status will need to be confirmed.

During this one-night workshop, participants will learn step-by-step how to create an acrylic painting. Mixing, blending, shading, and brush techniques will be touched upon. All will complete a wonderful painting.
