Join the Elisabet Ney Museum for a free, family friendly activity exploring the art of portraiture!
Who are you, and how do you tell people? Why do kids draw themselves how they do? What decisions do they make? Do they use props? Come explore the many, many ways to produce portraits–and self-portraits!–using crayons, paint, clay, words, rocks, music, pieces of metal, trash, even data! The Elisabet Ney Museum celebrates Elisabet’s work, and one of her most famous pieces is her own self-portrait!
Part of Austin Museum Day, the event is free and will bring all sorts of artists and activities together to help folks playfully find themselves in art! As usual, there will be food trucks, music, and other activities as well.
