Learn to do self portraits with an artist
Painting can be a very relaxing pastime for many amateurs. It is a wonderful hobby and especially if you have an aptitude for drawing or painting. I cannot draw and it is one hobby I have only ever tried once and failed miserably! However, I know several people who just love to paint and are also very good at it.

Then there is the art of painting or drawing portraits - this is even harder as I would imagine it is difficult to get faces correct and find the right shading to make them look real.

Doing a self-portrait would once again be even more difficult but for those people who can draw, this course would be an excellent one to take.

Frida Kahlo says "I paint self-portraits…….because I am the person I know best".

Jade Lees-Pavey will lead a self-portrait workshop during her solo exhibition 'On the Face of It'.

Participants will be using blind contour drawing as a starting point and you will begin with sketches of your own self-portraits.

The class will then continue with their chosen composition and different techniques will be considered in working out the finished sketch.

Painting, printmaking, collage and drawing tools will be available for participants to use. This workshop is open to anyone wishing to attempt a different approach to the self-portrait. You will be required to bring a head and shoulders photo of yourself.

This class is kept small so you can have a lot of one-on-one time with Jade. The cost of the ticket includes a material cost of $25.00 per student.

This workshop will take place in the new dedicated workshop/exhibition space at in.cube8r, Prahran. It will be held on Saturday 25th May 2019 from 1.00 pm till 3.30 pm. The address is 116 Greville Street, Prahran. The cost of this workshop is from $184 to $205 and you can find out more information as well as make a booking at this link.

This workshop has minimum student registration requirements. If not enough students register for the event you will be contacted for a refund/exchange of your ticket. Refunds are not available, but you can credit your fee to another class from the same tutor at a later date. The ticket cost includes GST and materials. The workshop space is located upstairs in the building.

About The Tutor
Jade Lees-Pavey has been doing art for the past two decades and has recently launched 'Come Pinch with Me'. These are ceramic sessions for people to check out and explore their creativity with clay. Her approach to skill sharing is to saturate the atmosphere with a "can do attitude" and help each participant find their own way with the medium.
