Hermandad de Sigma Iota Alpha, Inc. Seeking Artists to Do Portraits for the Event Self image vs. Outside image.

Our organization will be hosting an event an Tuesday, November 5 talking about what REAL beauty is, and discussing why women’s self image can be so distorted. Basing parts of our event off of Dove’s Beauty Campaign, we are asking for artists to assist in a project involving self-image to have ready the day of the event.

Artist(s) will be drawing a portrait of a woman without looking, based only on the woman’s description of herself. Then, for comparison, the artist will draw a second portrait of the same woman, still without seeing her, this time as described by another person. We would like to have a minimum of 3 women drawn in this fashion for comparing/contrasting self-image vs. outside image.

Artists must be able to draw portraits using description only, and if necessary be able to assist with the description by asking questions to help describe the subject. All portraits must be completed no later than Friday, November 1 so that everything can be gathered and prepared for the day of the event.
