What makes a face unique? Grotesque? Fascinating? Powerful? From family documentation to political propaganda, portraits have served a wide variety of purposes. They can be ephemeral or permanent, specific or general and their media moves beyond just photography and painting.

Using an assortment of materials (wire, paper, watercolor, paper-mâché, pencil, ink, the body, musical instruments, poetry, etc.) we will explore the variety of ways one creates a portrait.
