Tangled Fan in Renaissance Colors

Saturday, October 26th, 2:00pm-5:00pm

During the Renaissance a drawing technique called Chiaroscuro emerged in the fineart world. These types of drawings were done on subtly colored or toned paper, usually gray or tan. Using the paper as a neutral starting point, the artist would then use white pencil or paint to work towards light or to create highlights and then use black ink and pencil to work towards dark or create shading.

This workshop will introduce how the Zentangle Method and components of this Renaissance drawing technique come together. Students will become familiar with the techniques that will give their work that recognizable Renaissance look and feel. Working on tan paper, students will use brown, black and white pencils to create shadows and highlights.
