Explore the exhibition Leonard Cohen: A Crack in Everything before making your own self-portrait, inspired by Cohen’s artwork combining figuration with poetry. Participants will create a composition using mixed media techniques, weaving together words and imagery based on a song or poem of their choice, and exploring line drawing to create a unique and multi-layered self-portrait.

This workshop is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Leonard Cohen: A Crack in Everything.
