 In this selfie culture, make something more meaningful about yourself. Led by portrait artist Alice Ellis-Bray who recently exhibited at the Penwith Gallery, explore ideas behind the self-portrait. Learn how artists explore their identities and sense of ‘self’ through their homes, objects and clothing. Alice will help you discover how you can represent yourself through colours, marks and symbols. She will then lead you through the process of making your own ‘zine’ on which you will develop your set of small paintings. 

We are happy to continue offering limited FREE Scholarship places for those on low income. Please contact Cat Lee Youth Arts Manager for a Scholarship application form to apply  [email protected]

” I don’t believe in mistakes when it comes to making art. I encourage finding a belief in each line made, or brush stroke painted, and exploring further into how different stages of creativity trigger different emotions.”  

In her own practice Alice works with costume, painting, performance, and script to explore the infinite possibilities of identity and experience. Through learning the properties of nature and the nature of people, Alice seeks to portray an interconnectedness she has with all things.
