Glass & Portrait Painting Program for Youth

This workshop series will begin with an introduction to portraiture and glass painting. Participants will then engage in one-on-one discussion while they photograph each other. These photographs will then be used to paint each other’s portraits on mirrors. We hope the conversations and paintings that result from this project will change the way we view our community members and break through the socially constructed biases we have about others. For a sneak peek, click here.
