Paint a Self(ie)-Portrait in the Style of the Greats

Town Square artist Becky Andersen is back to teach a new painting series inspired by the modern self-portrait: the selfie. Great Selfies, the hands-on painting and learning series, will meet on Wednesdays from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at Town Square and feature a different artist each week (Picasso on Feb. 7th, Van Gogh on Feb. 21st, O’Keeffe on March 7th, Matisse on March 21st, and Warhol on April 4th).

“There’s no experienced necessary,” said Jorge Gutierrez of Green Lake Renewal. “Becky Andersen will teach you step-by-step how to paint a self-portrait in the style of the artist while sharing stories about the ‘characters behind the canvas’.”

Becky will provide wine and uncover scandalous secrets about the artists throughout the process. Students may also bring their own drinks. The classes are $35 each and include all materials. Participants can register in advance at here.

The Great Selfies Series is one of the many programs made possible by Green Lake Renewal, the non-profit organization that operates Town Square, Green Lake Fitness 24/7, Green Lake Kitchens business incubator and Mill Pond Terrace. For further information, call 920-807-0008.
