Self-Love Self-Portrait | Virtual Family Art Workshop

Join Cynthia Gahan from Heart Art Healing virtually for a step-by-step self portrait drawing experience you are sure to love!

We will complete a basic pencil outline and add color with your medium of choice. Throughout the activity you will be invited to add creative writing and drawing elements that symbolize self- love and personal care. At the end of the class we will read You’re Here for a Reason by Nancy Tillman as a reminder of how very special you are.
