Focusing on Fabric: Working with Charcoal & Acrylics

Artists are able to capture the 3-dimensional qualities of objects through their understanding of light and form. This class, ​with Donna Straw, is about looking, analyzing, discovering, thinking, feeling and doing. We will be working from observation with lights clipped on the draped fabric and placed on our tables. By doing preliminary exercises and drawings with charcoal pencil on charcoal paper it will increase our ability to see tonal relationships between lights and darks. Next, we will be working with a range of values through color mixing as we transition into paint, and discover how to blend light, medium and darker values with acrylics in order to capture the 3-dimensional qualities of fabric.
