Paint Your Selfie!


  • Chipping Barnet Library 3 Stapylton Rd Barnet EN5 4QT United Kingdom (map)
Libraries for Learning, Libraries for Leisure, Libraries for Life

Part of Barnet Libraries’ Year of Learning 2019 youth positive activities, in partnership with Barnet Youth Engagement, funded by Arts Council England.

In this 2-day course, the idea of the selfie will be taken to a fresh level.  Self-portraiture is a timeless technique, and in the 21st century has become a popular form of expression in photography, giving birth to the glorious 'selfie'.

This workshop will take the reflected image as its starting point, and as you see yourself in different ways through different mirrors you will create a series of self-portraits in gouache.  Along the way, you will see the value of how you paint and how you choose to express yourself through this medium.

Weds 29 May, 10am-12pm
& Thurs 30 May, 10am-12pm

£7 for the 2-day course. To book visit Barnet Youth or contact Chipping Barnet library directly at 020 8359 4040 or email.
