EXPLORING THE SELF

Portraiture Workshop with Vera Klute

for secondary school aged children

1.30pm – 4.30pm

Saturday 23rd June

Young people aged 13+ are invited to join artist Vera Klute on this bespoke one-off workshop which will explore traditional and contemporary portraiture in art, with a particular focus on self-portraiture and the modern obsession with editing and curating one’s own image through digital media.

Vera Klute, Hennessy Portrait Prize winner (2015), explores portraiture through a variety of means in her own practice, including painting, animation, sculpture and drawing. The workshop will include a visit to the portraiture room in the RHA Annual Exhibition, which has been a feature of the exhibition for 188 years. An introduction to Vera’s multidisciplinary practice, including her own pieces in the exhibition. Followed by a workshop where the young people will create their own self-portrait.

Participants will be encouraged to consider how they would like to represent themselves, thinking about pose, content, composition and media. The workshop, although structured, will provide a range of materials, supporting the young people to develop their own unique style of self-portraiture including the use of mobile phones, drawing, sculpture and painting.

Where students do wish to use photography or video, we ask that they bring their own mobile phone for the workshop.

Places are limited for this workshop.

This workshop is part of and supported by the citywide Cruinniú na nÓg children’s festival, which presents a full day of creative events for children and young people on Saturday 23rd June.
