ArtStarts on Saturdays presents: My Space as a Self-Portrait Collage with Kyra Kelpin
11:00 am - 1:45 pm
808 Richards Street
This creative photo collage workshop with photographer Kyra Kelpin taps into a child’s ideas around identity, play and regional environment. Using oneself as a subject and manipulating or reproducing our own image has long been a way that artists explore who we are and where we fit in. This workshop starts with portraiture and finishes with students exploring their image and local environment. Through a hands-on cut-and-paste method, students will build a self-portrait that represents for them their personality and the elements that they value around themselves. Cubism, collage and portraiture collide to become expressive works of art! Ideal for age 5 and up.
Sessions start at 11am and 1pm. Free! No pre-registration necessary.
ArtStarts on Saturdays is a free workshop series for families at the ArtStarts Gallery in downtown Vancouver, featuring free, fun, 45-minute arts workshops with some of the best children’s artists.
