Farnsworth Gamble Center for Education
From May 14 through June 18, Martha Miller led a class in mixed media portraiture at the Farnsworth. In this class students were guided in creating portraits that go beyond rendering and speak of the inner workings of each individual. They created self-portraits as well as worked from live models using an array of mixed media drawing media including pastels, charcoal, oils, and pencil.
Martha Miller has been creating portraits and self-portraits for over thirty years. She has work in numerous collections including the California Palace of the Legion of Honor, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, CA. Miller has a BFA in printmaking from MECA. Some of her work can be seen on her website www.marthamiller.com.
