A fun and creative project that combines the realism achieved from the use of Colored Pencil, and the spontaneous effects achieved from the textured paper, fabric, ribbon, and a “sculpted” Matte Medium surface. Provided by the Instructor, each student will have a choice between 3 reference photos to work from with Colored Pencil. This will be a “focal point” of the artwork. Next, the paper, ribbon, fabric, and Matte Medium are all combined to create a wonderfully textured surface for the next step of adding Watercolor and Acrylic. Get ready to be surprised at the depth, mystery, and mood that contrasts against the intricate realism of your “focal point”... and have fun doing it!


PEGGY MAGOVERN is a award-winning artist in published work, galleries, and recently with the Colored Pencil Society of America's international exhibition. Peggy's 15 years in art instruction follows a career in commercial art. Her work has been published in the Smithsonian, the Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, Doubleday, and the Oxford University Press, among others. Peggy's on-going art classes are held at the Pleasanton Firehouse Arts Center, and she holds workshops at the Delta Gallery of the Arts, Mendocino Art Center, and other locations around the Bay Area. Her latest published work can be seen in the book, Mendocino Coast Artists.
