I decided to illustrate the chain of issues I observed after my research and visits to Page Hall. Through these illustrations, I want to show my process of taking up this project and my process of working on it, conducting workshop etc. In the end I wish to create series of posters that give basic information about Roma community.
When asked to draw self portraits, few women were little hesitant but others were enthusiastic and started drawing immediately. It was amusing to see that most of them coloured their eyes blue even though none of them had blue eyes!
Last week’s workshop on drawing portraits.
