Mexican Portrait Illustration
In this practical workshop, we will be inspired by the colourful world of traditional Mexican art, creating hand drawn illustrations on paper using pens & pencils, in the distinctive style of Frida Kahlo and the votive paintings that inspired her work.
Bring a portrait photograph of yourself.
Also bring some photos of people, pets or mementos that reflect your life, plus one paragraph from a text or poem you are fond of.
Suitable for all levels, although an ability to focus and work with precision is essential, as the work incorporates much fine detail.
