In conjunction with 100 Faces of War, a traveling exhibition from the Smithsonian Institution, with local funding for this program provided through a grant from the Florida Humanities Council with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities, join Heather Spooner, Assistant Scholar and Instructor at the University of Florida's Center for Art in Medicine, at the Museum of Arts & Sciences in an art making session designed to build on the notion of using art forms to explore and work through personal issues.
Portraits often portray an image that the subject or artist have crafted to convey a specific persona. Another art form that explores personas is masks, which can allow us to try on new identities or conceal our true identity. In this workshop, participants will create mixed media masks that explore the themes of what we reveal and what we conceal. They will also learn about how mask making have been used by art therapists as a therapeutic process with service members returning from war.
This class is for ages 18 and older.
