Self Portraiture Workshop – April 2017


Photographers have often used self portraiture to explore their art and themselves.  This class will focus on using self portraiture to grow and explore not only as an artist but as a human being. You will look at vision, technique and voice.  You need to bring a camera that has a self timer and/or a remote shutter.

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.  I wrote a bit more about what it means to me in my post two years ago, here,  so on to the details!

I’m so excited to be bringing my self portrait workshop to my art studio downtown Ann Arbor.  Each Tuesday in April from 6pm to 8pm no more then 10 of us will meet for instruction, discussion and to share our work  Our focus will be self portraiture with a camera but artists who work in other mediums and want to explore this genre are more than welcome.  We’ll be working together to explore learning how to not only take an effective self-portrait but how self-portraiture can be used to inspire our art and build confidence.   This will be my fifth time offering this class and I can’t wait to see what we can learn and create this time!

Enrollment is limited and the cost is $275.00 per person
