Identity, Fashion & Aspirational Portraiture: Teen Art Camp with Joalida Smit Monday, June 26

Identity, Fashion & Aspirational Portraiture: Teen Art Camp with Joalida Smit

  • Location: Gorton Center
    400 E. Illinois Road, Lake Forest, IL 60045

This camp runs Monday, June 26 – 30, 9:00am – 12:00pm

In this camp, we will explore identity – who we are & who we want to be – through contemporary portraiture. Focusing on pattern, texture & design we will construct a portrait of our aspirational future self, drawing inspiration from images around us.

Your teen will learn to express themselves through art, using collage and mixed media to eventually construct an artwork that tells a story in their own unique voice.

Ages: 12 – 18 Years Old

Joalida Smit is a Clinical Psychologist and Neuropsychologist turned full time artist. Through these fun workshops she brings together her two passions: art and psychology, assisting teens to think about their full creative selves. This course is open to all teens. LGBTQ friendly. This is not art therapy but using art to tell stories of psychological significance. www.joalidasmit.com
