Create a mixed media portrait of a body part that tells a story about you in an ongoing workshop setting. Keep it for yourself or share it with others in a memoir installation which includes textual, mixed media and photographic art which benefits Come join us for fun and creativity!


Using mixed media supplies provided, participants will make a visual version of My Body- My Self as well as write a paragraph, poem, or whatever about a meaningful body part and the story about it. They will then have a chance to share their written story with others in the small group. The groups are on-going. It usually takes people 40-50 minutes to finish their project. Most leave their art to be included in the installation but some fall in love with theirs and have to keep it!
