Taking Phoebe Boswell's exhibition as a starting point, in this online workshop we will explore self-reflection exercises and we will produce our own self-portraits, drawing inspiration from portrait photography, digital art, graffiti, painting and West African textiles. Join us to create your own self-portrait and learn useful technical skills along the way.

This workshop will take place online, delivered via Zoom. We can provide free packs with art materials. To receive the materials please book one ticket per each participating young person. The materials will be posted to you so please provide your postage address upon booking.
