You, Yourself, and You: A Self-Portrait Workshop

I am excited to be offering a workshop all about YOU on Sunday, April 12. Really, it's all about you!

In this workshop you'll create three mixed media self-portraits. These self-portraits can be as literal or symbolic and you want them to be. There are no rules, just your openness and willingness to explore and play! Think collage images, wax, paint, string, feathers, glitter, found objects, and more!

If you know of someone who may be interested in this workshop, I would be grateful if you passed this blog post along! Thank you!

You, Yourself, and You: A Self-Portrait Workshop

When: Sunday, April 12, 2009: 1-5pm
Where: Rising Bird Healing Arts
Cost: $60 (cash, checks, and credit cards accepted)
To Register: Email Courtney at

In this hands-on art workshop, we will explore the self in three parts: past self, present self, and future self. Using mixed media collage as our medium, we will cut and paste together meaningful images to reveal who we once were, to celebrate who we are now, and to imagine who we might become with some nurturing and encouragement. Feel free to bring meaningful images you’ve collected. Otherwise, all art supplies provided! Light refreshments provided.

Space is limited, so register early!


  1. Sounds like great creative fun!! I love your image of self here - the colors, textures, and expressiveness are oh so really rich.

  2. Sounds like a great workshop. Too bad it's so far away.

    Great piece!
