Self-portraiture has helped shape me as a photographer and as a woman; it has been a touchstone and a way to find confidence in my work and in myself. Self-portraits are the personal work that keeps my creative engines fed.
Selfie is a new word in the dictionary but artists have been using self-portraiture as a way to look inward at themselves and share their own visions of who they are for hundreds of years. Â ThisÂ Â June I am teaching a four week self-portrait workshop Â in my studio downtown Ann Arbor. Â We’ll be working together to explore learning how to not only take a self-portrait but how self-portraiture can be used to inspire and build confidence. Â Classes will include sharing of assigned work so a camera is the only requirement. Â I’ll be announcing all the deets next week but I wanted to put it out there and get gears spinning. Â If you are interested in being emailed the information as soon as it’s published please don’t hesitate to make a comment down below, your email will not be shared. Â If you are just curious you can sign up too OR just check back here next week.
I am so excited to be sharing Â an especially meaningful part of my work. Â
