Today, in Drawing, students looked at some sketches and final masterpieces of Renaissance artists. Fabric was a common sketch subject, as it helped artists understand shape and value as well as to give them practice for their masterpieces which often included drapery cloth. My drawing students are working on drawing this fabric using white conte crayon & charcoal on toned paper.

"With more free time, I am working to go back to my roots and explore the possibilities of drawing and painting. With my educational goals met, it is now time to focus on my own inspiration in order to keep the atmosphere in my classroom fresh."
