ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Empower yourself through art for Women’s Day!
Join illustrator Natalie Very B. in a three-hour workshop where you’ll learn how to create an empowering version of a self portrait with ink and tell YOUR story through visual imagery. During the process you’ll look at yourself with a newly found kindness and appreciate your own body as a sacred temple and a real work of art. This workshop will focus on body positivity and a variety of inking techniques. International Women’s Day is the following day, Sunday March 8, 2020, however all genders are welcome to participate in this workshop.
