Self-portraiture has helped shape me as a photographer and as a woman; it has been a touchstone and a way to find confidence in my work and in myself. Self-portraits are the personal work that keeps my creative engines fed.
Selfie is a new word in the dictionary but artists have been using self-portraiture as a way to look inward at themselves and share their own visions of who they are for hundreds of years. Â ThisÂ Â June I am teaching a four week self-portrait workshop Â in my studio downtown Ann Arbor. Â We’ll be working together to explore learning how to not only take a self-portrait but how self-portraiture can be used to inspire and build confidence. Â Classes will include sharing of assigned work so a camera is the only requirement. Â I’ll be announcing all the deets next week but I wanted to put it out there and get gears spinning. Â If you are interested in being emailed the information as soon as it’s published please don’t hesitate to make a comment down below, your email will not be shared. Â If you are just curious you can sign up too OR just check back here next week.
I am so excited to be sharing Â an especially meaningful part of my work. Â
Laura YarckowThis sounds like so much fun and could reallyb help me develop. I’m not sure if the timing will work, but would love to see the art made.

Julieen kaneI’m not too sure what camera I have that is working order. I really don’t own a digital camera except my I phone :) I consider myself an artist but not a photographer. A rusty artist with not a lot of confidence my work or myself. This sounds perfect.
