Join us this summer as we transform our Exhibition Gallery into a hands-on portrait studio for young makers.
Children are both artist and subject as they explore their "me-ness" by creating a self-portrait. Mirrors encourage children to study their faces and re-create themselves on paper, blending the image they see in the mirror with the person they experience themselves to be.
How do I see myself?
How do I want others to see me?
What makes me unique?
At the end of their studio session, young artists are invited to contribute a portrait to this collaborative exhibition. Ipswich Art Gallery staff will hang all works at the end of each day, installing Just be Your Selfie throughout the summer. Be sure to visit often and see how this exhibition progressively fills our Exhibition Gallery.
