Self-portraits are the perfect opportunity to show off our art skills and our faces after months of mask-wearing! Join us for an awesome self-portrait Zoom class led by artist and illustrator Linda Knoll. You can create your self-portrait using any materials you have at home, but those who need supplies can pick up a free Family Friday Kit from the Carnegie. Each kit contains a watercolor set of 8 colors with a paint brush and mixed media paper. Pickup will begin Saturday, January 16 during open hours.
Linda Knoll is a local artist, teacher, and graphic designer. She enjoys drawing and painting portraits of people and pets, especially faces with fun expressions using lots of color. She has also published a couple of picture books (available in Carnegie’s gift shop), about local wildlife and the farmer’s market.
Linda’s latest adventure is a magazine about the arts that is perfect for children and families. It’s called StArt (Stanislaus Art) and focuses stories and activities around our regional arts happenings. Issue #2 of StArt will be coming out in mid-January. The upcoming edition connects art and peace, things we hope to have much more of in the coming year. It features stories and activities about peacemakers, finding peace through art, and much more. Subscriptions can be ordered at lindaknollart.com/start-magazine.
This event is free as part of the Carnegie’s Family Friday series of monthly programs designed to provide fun, educational, and creative activities for families. Sponsored by Kids Care Dental & Orthodontics.
