Iconic Portraiture
Saturday, September 19, 2015 | 1:00 - 3:00 pm
Guest Artist: Lydia Walls

This class will show guests how to translate photos of their loved ones and/or pets into a special iconic portrait. Like Lydia’s portraits people will draw someone they love and care. This can not only be a member of family, friends, pets, but also be historic figures, celebrity, fictional characters and so on. Bring the picture of who you want to draw then, we will explore to make this portrait more iconic image by adding text, patterns of any interesting background as well. It will offer an introduction to several art making techniques including the use of a grid system method and collage process. Along with making a custom portrait, guests will have the opportunity to visit MOCA GA's exhibition, Georgia Georgia to see how other artists' processes have evolved.


Lydia Walls is a native Georgia portrait, mural, installation, and stop animation artist. She obtained her BFA in Drawing, Painting, and Printmaking from Georgia State University in 2006. Immediately following school, she joined the Golden Blizzard art collective. In 2015, Lydia served as the ACAC's Gilda Radner Research and Translation Center’s inaugural Artist-In-Residence and interpreted materials and created for the program both on- and off-site.
