Gallery + Studio: Self-Portraits/Community Portraits
For ages 6 to 12 with accompanying adult(s)
Vreni Michelini-Castillo is a multidisciplinary cultural producer, community organizer, and educator with an MFA from UC Berkeley. She is the cofounder of Aguas Migrantes, an artist collective that runs a summer artist residency in Mexico. Her teaching practice of over ten years incorporates Red medicine, hip-hop, decoloniality, and poetry into various art practices.
Create mixed-media portraits of yourself and people in your community inspired by Karabo Poppy Moletsane’s Art Wall project. Using collage, drawing, and painting, explore the use of shapes, colors, and textures in portraiture, while experimenting with scale.
About Gallery + Studio
On the second Saturday of each month, Gallery + Studio connects art viewing with art making in ways that engage both young people and their grown-ups. Each two-part workshop integrates an interactive gallery tour with a related art project, and lasts about an hour and a half. Sign up on site beginning fifteen minutes before the session you wish to attend. Space is limited to twelve kids per session; please arrive promptly to sign up.
