Adult artists of all abilities are welcome to come experience our diverse workshops led by several Kennedy Center Expressive Arts Therapists and Facilitators and local Bridgeport artists.

Second Saturdays will begin on September 8th from 11am-1pm and will continue for 10 months on every second Saturday, the last being in June 2019. While there is not a fee to participate in the workshops, a $10 donation is recommended to help cover our costs. 

Rebecca Goyette - Contents Within: Self-Portrait
September 8th, 2018

The excitement of art making happens through sharing our stories of everyday life, from the mundane to the intimate we share the contents within. 

In this drawing, painting and collaging workshop, we will explore self-portraiture by drawing the bag we carry around with us and the contents within.  How do the items we carry with us tell our story?  What is specific to ourselves as an individual, what is universal?  Drawing from life techniques and art historical references about everyday narratives will be explored in this hour and half art making workshop.
