This 3 day workshop and evening lecture focuses on how the forms of drapery create shape, gesture, drama and unity.

If you look over the past 600 years of Western Painting you’ll see drapery everywhere - on classical and religious figures, elegant portraits, genre paintings, still-lives, interiors;  drapery covers acres of canvas.  Because it captures gravity, weight and movement, it does a great deal of the work in making a convincing dynamic composition.   Drapery can be manipulated and altered in ways that bodies can never be, and yet define the forms of the body underneath.  As it covers it also reveals.  Fabric retains the gesture of movement, giving life to static forms.  Changes of color on each turning plane are subtle  and dependent on fabric texture. This gives tactile specificity for the sense of touch.   Fabric suggests content and drama.

Working from visual perception and studying light relationships we will use both still life and figure to simplify and extract the essentials of form and gesture through drapery for a unified and dramatic whole.
