Through My Lens, episode 4– Self Portraits in your room

April 17, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - April 17, 2020 @ 1:30 pm

We’re embracing the need to innovate how people access MOPA’s art by turning the lens on us.

Catch weekly shows on MOPA’s Facebook and YouTube.

Self Portraits in your room

Is there a space in your home that is just YOURS? You fill it with the things you love, and you arrange it in a way that suits the way you live. At different stages in your life, this special and personal space – your sanctuary – will reflect who you are at that time. It will change as you grow and change.

This week, we are focusing on this year’s theme for our Annual Juried Youth Exhibition, Growing Up. We’ll be creating self portraits in our most sacred place at home, surrounded by the things that are important to us, and capturing where we are right now on our journey of growing up.

You will need:

  • A device to take pictures (Camera, smart phone, or tablet)
  • Your bedroom
  • A tripod or a family member that is quarantined with you to hold your camera (optional)
