We invite you to an exhibition of highlights from our first-year students’ self-portraits This final project of OCAD University’s first-year Drawing and Painting students is entitled the Life-Sized Self-Portrait. This creative challenge offers time for students to reflect on their first year in art school and apply all the skills they have learned to their first large format painting. Conceptually, instructors provide students with several prompts that encourage the use of family memories, symbolic interventions, avatars, anthropomorphic approaches to archetypes, and shapeshifters or other substitutes for the human body. Come and explore this delightful display of compelling images by/of students embarking on the journey of discovering who they are as artists and creative thinkers.
