Haagse portretten (Hague portraits) is a sympathetic exhibition and workshop at Grafische werkplaats Den Haag (The Hague Graphic Studio). It aims at getting the public acquainted with graphic techniques, especially linocut.
The Graphic Studio invites amateurs to make their own self portraits in linocut and pose with the result for a digital picture. Both results are shown in and on a photo booth.

It is combined with an exhibition of selfportraits by artists who are connected to The Hague.
It shows how the Grafische Werkplaats supports both artists and amateurs and it is great fun.
The workshop and the combined exhibition will travel in The Hague in 2015 and the coming year.
Maybe it would be a suggestion for the workshop also to visit an asylum seekers centre in The Hague?
It may give some relief and fun as it does to the Hague amateurs and artists.
