Open Studio from Home:
Marisol

SAT, Jan 30, 2021
11–11:40 am

Online, via Zoom

Families with kids of all ages

You are invited to Open Studio From Home, free weekly online art classes with Whitney Educators! Participants will experiment, create, and learn together with at-home art materials.  

Each of the four life-size wooden female figures in Women and Dog is a self-portrait of the artist Marisol. The central head even includes a black-and-white photograph of her, and the multiple faces on the two adjacent figures were cast in plaster directly from the artist’s face. The small girl represents Marisol as a child. 

Join us to learn more about the art and life of Marisol. Then, create a six-sided self-portrait of your own!

Materials:

  • Small cardboard box
  • Scissors
  • Photos of yourself, people you love, and interesting things
  • Collage materials: 
    • Colorful paper
    • Magazine clippings
