In conjunction with our current exhibition, The Artist Revealed: Portraits and Self-Portraits, a series of six hands-on portrait-making stations are available to students and the general public. These stations introduce a variety of approaches to the art of portraiture as a means to teach creative problem solving and encourage exploration. Each station provides an exercise that has been carefully constructed to demonstrate the fundamental concepts of observation, representation, and innovative thinking. Together, the series of six exercises provides exposure to fundamental concepts such as proportion, form, volume and value while encouraging active engagement in creative problem solving and exploration.
