What’s in a Face? Janet Wilson teaches portrait drawing at Guelph Museums

GUELPH, ON, Tuesday, October 14, 2014 – In the age of Facebook and selfies, there is heightened interest in the human face and how it expresses mood, emotion and character. Children’s author and illustrator Janet Wilson is a master portrait illustrator, so she knows a little something about the subject. She is set to teach a workshop entitled About Face about the art of portraiture at the Guelph Civic Museum on Saturday, October 18 at 2 p.m.

In her most recent books, Wilson uses her portrait drawing ability to capture the energy, optimism and determination of youth activists. “I’ve been fortunate to be able to combine my love for portraiture with my passion for telling true stories about the amazing efforts of young activists from around the world who are making a difference,” says Wilson.

Her workshop is designed for people of all ages and artistic abilities.  The workshop is free with museum admission. Participants are required to pre-register at Guelph.ca/museum.

Guelph Civic Museum is located at 52 Norfolk St. Admission is  $4 adults, $3 children, students and seniors, and $10 for a family, including up to two adults and three children.
