This will be an enlightening workshop on the power of facial “sculpting” that’s achieved through the use of values. No color; just beautiful, strong building of shadow plains. Your completed portrait will emerge out of the paper as if it were a multi-dimensional sculpture. No need to bring a thing to class except your $10 materials payment. This fee will provide for your pencils, sharpener, eraser, a reference photo to work from, a step-by-step written guide, and an outline-sketch on drawing paper to get your started. Prepare to amaze yourself!


After years in the commercial art field, PEGGY MAGOVERN has taught private and group art classes and workshops for more than 15 years. An award winner in two international shows featuring colored pencil, Peggy has been published recently in Larry Wagner’s North Coast Artists. Other published works include The Smithsonian, The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, Sports Illustrated, and Oxford University Press, among others.
