In Renee Stout’s "A Vision I Can’t Forget," two Afro-Caribbean figurines hang on the wall behind a self-portrait of the artist. Considered together, the elements in the piece contribute to a complex narrative regarding identity and cultural history. In this session, participants will use charcoal to produce a symbolic portrait that tells something about the person represented. Participants can copy Stout’s image or bring reference materials to to create an original.
Seats are limited to 15 participants. Registration will open on Friday, November 3 at 12 p.m. Register now.
