What is a Self-Portrait? MCAD Students Respond "Any time you're asked to describe your work and you end up describing yourself." "An exercise of truth that involves your experience with oneself, to depict what it is you see." "A self-portrait is a great way to describe yourself without words." "A self-portrait offers a more personal glimpse into how someone views themselves than what might normally be offered from an outside perspective." "A self-portrait is something you have to do to get into MCAD!" Do you have a self-portrait (or any other artwork!) you'd like us to see?
