Mandy Stobo at Jennie Emery Elementary School

Jennie Emery Elementary School Workshop with Mandy Stobo April 13 – 14, 2014 

85 grade 4 students from Jennie Emery Elementary School had the opportunity to meet Mandy Stobo, learn more about her art practice and make their own ‘bad portrait.’ The Bad Portrait workshop explores “mark making” exercises that allow participants to become more comfortable with their individual marks. This workshop encourages participants to find beauty in their quarks and unique style. This workshop aims to increase participant’s confidence in drawing through discussion, visual exercises exploring shape and gestural techniques and the creation of a ‘bad’ self-portrait.
