Explore the ways in which drapery can achieve a dramatic, multi-dimensional look. Using only four colored pencils, learn to render the different folds that are produced from different cloths, and evaluate shadows, texture, and the look of bulk through the application of values. This course helps to support greater realism for images in still life and in portraiture. Photo and paper provided. Open to all levels.


An art instructor for 16 years, PEGGY MAGOVERN comes from a commercial art background with clients including The Smithsonian, Oxford University Press, The Sierra Club, Newsweek, and Banana Republic. Her latest published work is with North Coast Artists.
