Art Beyond Sight and the New York Public Library collaborated with artist Rebecca Bersohn on Tuesday, May 8th, to offer one of its monthly art-making workshops at the Andrew Heiskell Library, 40 West 20th Street, NYC. Participants created self-portraits, focusing on texture and shape. Rebecca walked them through a careful examination of their faces, encouraging them to notice specificities, such as whether they have an angular nose or a rounder one, bushy eye-browns, pointy chin, long and soft or coarse hair etc. Participants used a variety of materials for their collage portraits, including fabrics, wooden disks, foil, feathers, and textured paper – with each participant selecting what he or she felt would best represent their unique features and hair styles. Some of the resultant artworks are shown here.
