What is star quality? What makes people look good in photos? It's the quality that made Kurt Cobain stand out among the other local musicians; it's also what Andy Warhol was looking for in his Screen Tests and photographs. After a walk through SAM's two current special exhibitions, local photographer Alice Wheeler takes participants out on the street with models to make portraits in the neighborhood around the Seattle Art Museum.
A camera (digital or film) is required for participation in this workshop.
