In the Transformative Painted Portrait Collage Workshop, you are expertly led by artist, art educator and art therapist Laura Bohn in an intuitive and creative process to transform an image of yourself, or a magazine portrait image, into an archetype.
Altering a portrait/figure provides a symbolically layered means of reflection and transformation, especially when creating art for wellness with artist/art therapist Laura Bohn.
No art experience is necessary.
The way it works:
What to bring:
Please bring a printed copy, or a magazine image of a portrait (of yourself, of another, a magazine image, or a loved one) No photos but copies of photos work well.
Any additional memorabilia or ephemera you bring will enhance your personal experience.
