About this event

A free-form class taught by instructor Yara El Safi that teaches inking techniques while learning how to be mindful during the creative process with a hand-held mirror. In this 2hr workshop you can perfect painting with ink while learning how to love and appreciate their own face and features. We will include all the materials needed to perfect your portrait.

Yara El Safi is a Queer, Muslim, visual artist and educator that teaches self-portraiture with ink.

Raised in Tripoli, Lebanon, El Safi immigrated with her family to Windsor, Ontario in 2002. Currently based in Toronto, Ontario, her BFA aided with the establishment of her artistic discipline in formal studio practice, while her background in Women’s Studies informed her foundation to understand herself within a Canadian context and the intersections of identity in her ongoing practice.

If you are looking for more ways to tune into self care and channel a new sense of balance join us for one of 3 upcoming sessions.

*these workshops are for Indigenous, Black, racialized, women and gender diverse people*
