Jordan Casteel often depicts her friends and community members in informal and domestic settings. Taking inspiration from the portraits in the exhibition “Jordan Casteel: Within Reach,” participants will be encouraged to draw their family members and friends. Families will consider how the settings, vibrant colors, and objects incorporated in Casteel’s portraits express different moods and meanings, and ask one another, “What details do you want in your portrait?”
