Drawing Drapery and Dramatic Costume

Drapery is an important subject in art from simple drapery to costume.  This workshop will use pencil and chalk to explore the elegant art of drapery using dramatic staging, lighting, and costume. Through lecture and demonstration students will learn about the structure of drapery, the different types of folds, line theory, light and shadow, drawing techniques, and gain skills by drawing from observation. This workshop is open to both beginners and advanced students.
