Portrait and Personal History
Date & Time: July 14 and 21; 2-5 pm
Registration Deadline: July 11
Many of us have an old shoebox full of photos or a family photo album or a digital library; the vital part is the memory and connections to people, friends, and family. In this workshop, we’ll start with that photograph that holds these memories to explore Portraiture and facilitate telling a story through a visual medium. Through observational drawing and an exploration of color and composition, you will have the opportunity to transform that photographic memory into a work of art to share with others.
Dylan Evans Weiler holds a BFA from Northern Michigan University and earned his Master of Fine Arts from Laguna College of Art and Design. His primary focus during his studies was painting. His practice includes a diverse set of media, including printmaking, the historical photographic process, sound, and installation. He brings together traditional and new media to create a more engaging experience for the audience. dylanevansweiler.com
