A Face, Plus Words

Creative Moments - Workshops for adults

Throughout the ages and in every culture, the subject of the human face has provided inspiration for countless artists. Leonard Cohen was no exception to this artistic tendency, as is eloquently illustrated by the extensive series of self-portraits he produced. Visitors to this presentation of works, being shown for the first time, will notice that the subject of the artist’s face comes to take precedence over its visual expression; it becomes the scene of constant variation and fuels his fertile imagination.

In this workshop, participants will each be invited to try out the wide range of artistic approaches used by Cohen as they produce a series of self-portraits made up of lines, combined with shapes, set off by colours and accompanied by words with a poetic quality. A selection of the self-portraits and poems will be digitized and posted on Facebook.

About Creative Moments

This program of activities revolving around artistic expression offers adults an opportunity to become acquainted with original artistic practices and try out various aspects of the creative process. Each session presents a new visual or media arts activity, with a different subject, theme, technique and medium. Participants can thus discover, from a new angle, the many different creative possibilities offered by the works on view at the Musée.
