"In Facial Expressions, led by Orly Avineri, we will dive into alternative portraiture in our journals using mixed media processes. You will be introduced to unconventional materials and to unusual, easy, and natural ways to express yourself in your art journal. Idiosyncratic depictions of self bring us face to face, literally and figuratively, to our personal evolution. More than any subject matter in art, they challenge our creative and emotional comfort zones and urge us to reevaluate our truths, and our openness to examine them. Portrait making brings us closer to ourselves and closer to others, to a deeper sense of belonging. Rather than focusing on accurate or well executed depictions of faces, we will delve into the practice of telling and mending stories through intimate and free processes in collaging, painting, drawing, writing, stitching, and more, to achieve truthful processes of self expression and peace finding, both internal and collective."
Last Fall's workshop was reported as a truly amazing five days for the attendees.
