Mother's Day at Edward Hopper House

Come celebrate Mother’s Day with us at the Edward Hopper House - with this family art workshop, tea & cupcakes!

Sunday, May 14, 1-3 PM: ALTERED PORTRAITS
Inspired by the portraiture of Mercedes Helnwein, we'll be creating our own altered portraits! Bring in some photographs of yourself or we'll provide you with images. We'll begin by cutting up our portraits into various pieces and then re-mounting them onto foam core in an interesting way. Then, we'll use oil pastels to add, conceal or change features both on top of the images as well as in the negative space. 

This workshop is inspired by the Edward Hopper House's "Chaos Theory" exhibition, on view May 26 - August 6, 2017.
