Self Portrait Workshop with Greg Rose

September 6 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Join Greg Rose for a self portrait workshop! In this workshop you’ll delve into the art of self-portraiture. Learn and discover different techniques to capture yourself on paper. No prior experience needed! This workshop is designed for all skill levels, from beginners to experienced artists. Materials will be provided, ensuring you have everything you need to bring your masterpiece to life.
About the artist:
A multidisciplinary artist who creates under the moniker of Hay Kidd, Greg Rose finds it paramount that they reflect their experience as a black queer non-binary artist living within the reach of poverty and under the knee of racism and homophobia. Rose believes having representation of those stories is necessary to creating new terms and conditions in our social contract, where all experiences are not only valued but protected. In reflecting on Courage, they say, “Courage is a virtue and virtues are the means between two vices, one of deficiency and one of excess. I would love for you to take a second and allow yourself to be transported by the vivid colors to a whimsical landscape and stand in courage—not just now but always.”
SPARK is a partnership with Downtown Indy, the City of Indianapolis, and the Indiana War Memorials Commission — and funded by the Capital Improvements Board. It is a continuation of our work last year and in 2015 on the Circle. Check our website for more.
At Big Car, we approach our work at the Circle as a site- and community-specific socially engaged art and creative placemaking project. The SPARK on the Circle pop-up park was collaboratively designed with Indianapolis-based Merritt Chase to be a restorative public place where people of all walks of life can relax, play, socialize, and engage with art and artists in the heart of our city.
