A self-portrait can be very revealing. Do we like ourselves?  Do we portray ourselves as we think we are or how we think people see us?  We will draw ourselves and maybe each other in many different ways. Perhaps we will surprise ourselves and get to know ourselves better in the process,

Please bring a hat and a freestanding mirror.

Gerda Roper is a mature artist who loves to paint and draw and is currently exhibiting in the Ruralist Room here at MOMA She taught Painting in Art Departments in Universities all her life, and is an Emeritus Professor of Fine Art. She believes that painting is as much about what you see, as what you feel, and that how a painting is painted also contributes to how it is read. In teaching she likes to investigate content, material, and methodology to creatively combine all three.

This class will begin with a short PowerPoint about people and portraits by various artists.

Free but pre-booking required.
