Project Self Portrait

Note: Since this is becoming a bigger group than I had anticipated, I will be booking a room at the Northville District Library. It will cost approx $1-2/person (we can divide the $25 charges amongst us as it depends on how many make it)It will be more comfortable like this. Please feel free to get something snacks/drinks to make it a fun evening. No alcohol as I do not think alcohol is allowed :P Looking foward to seeing what everyone produces! It should be fun!

There is a call for some serious art work and I am answering it! A few of us are embarking on a work of art which will be unveiled in front of our own members at their own risk.We will all be making a self portrait which could be expressed in any medium. It could be a painting (abstract or otherwise) or sculpture, it could be a collage or phtograph or print. Any visual art that you feel represents you will be accepted. It will be interesting to see how we perceive ourselves. Even if you have not painted or done any art work before, I would encourage you to give this a try.

I have combined this with the Tie and Dye event as we could all gather together that day and those of us who want to tie and dye can do so. It does not take that long. Please bring a snack/drink to share.

I am very much looking forward to this and hope to see you there with a piece to unveil. Since this is not something that can be accomplished quickly, I am setting this for Jan as that will give us some time to think and create.

See you there!

    Is anyone coming from Warren by any chance? My Guy was called in to work, and had to take my car. If there is, can you let me know ASAP? Thanks, I'm really looking forward to this!

      I am planning to go out and party tonight--if I can get out of my jammies and brave the bitter cold. :)

    @ KathrynZ...we all do what we can. Perhaps the project will continue for a future date. It may end up that we are like an "artist colony." LOL :)

    Did you say we are also doing tie dye at this meeting? FYI-you can get a meeting room at the Livonia libraries for free if whoever makes the reservation is a resident. They have 3 locations.

      I found more info on the library website. There is a $25 charge for some of the rooms, but the Sandburg room may be our best bet if it has a sink since it is free if we can meet Tuesday (open 'til 8pm) or Sat. If we're not requiring a sink maybe the smaller free meeting rooms at Civic Center other weeknights 'til 9pm. Here are links: http://livonia.lib.mi...­ http://livonia.lib.mi...­

      Hi MaryEllen, thank so much for all the info. I looked though and think we could use one of the rooms if it is during weeknights. That would work for the art classes. But I do not see anything that is free on the weekends..am I missing it? Please do call me if you get a chance (I will email number). I would like to discuss various options with you. Thanks once again for this brillant idea!

    I assume that we bring our own art supplies?

    December 11, 2012

    • Gopa

      Hi Kim, welcome to the group! The idea is to come with a piece of art already created. It could be abstranct or realistic; a sculpture, photograph or painting. We will share our self potrait with the others in the group and talk about it if we want to.

      Hi Gopa, thanks for stating that we should have the piece completed before the meetup, i was wondering a bit about that.

      December 12, 2012

  • Barbara

    Hi Gopa, do we just pay the day of?

    December 11, 2012

    • Gopa

      That would be fine Barbara!

    The Self Portrait meet-up will be a great chance for self expression for those who seldom work on their own creative projects. I look forward to seeing everyone's work

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
