A visual arts workshop where children will create their own self-portrait to be digitised and hung as part of a growing exhibition demonstrating the complexity of children’s self-expression and cultural plurality. This workshop extends themes of self-reflection, diversity, multiplicity and community as well as building fundamental skills in self-portraiture and watercolors.

The large scale growing installation develops each day with the artworks of the previous day. The concept of this artwork shows the diversity of faces in our community as well as the perspective of each child artist and how they see themselves.

This workshop was created by QPAC’s Out of the Box Festival in Brisbane.

In this hands-on workshop, children paint their own self portrait. In doing so, they're asked to reflect on questions like: How do I want to be seen in the world? How is my face a reflection of who I am? How do I feel?

Here I Am celebrates the wonderful diversity in our society and at the same time, explores each individual in their own right. We all may have different eyes, hair and skin, but we play the same, smile the same and laugh the same.

Here I Am invites us to consider that the way our children perceive themselves may be very different to how we see them from the outside.
