Identity and Self Portrait - with Annabelle Schneider-Farris
Throughout art history, artists have reflected on their lives through the tool of self-portraiture. How we see ourselves influences our perspective, decisions, and daily experience. How does Judaism play a role in this? Come explore self-portraiture as a tool for self-reflection and growth.
