Award winning artist Carol Herren Foerster will be exhibiting a selection of pencil drawings in the Studio at the ACAC’s Arts Education Center during the month of April.  The Arts Council will host an artist’s reception on Friday, April 3rd, from 5-7:30 p.m. at the ACAC’s Arts Education Center located at 125 S. Washington Street, Gettysburg.

“Drawings by Carol Herren Foerster,” represents a range of pencil drawing artwork to include portrait drawings on a larger scale, as well as drawings from nature.  Foerster, with more than 40 years of experience, approaches each piece with a fresh eye and credits her ability to successfully convey light and shadow with each piece by “working from left to right to avoid smearing the graphite.”

Foerster will be offering some tips on how to draw in black and white areas and discussing her pencil drawing techniques on Wednesday, April 22, 1-2:30 p.m. at the ACAC’s Arts Education Center.  The fee is $15 and registration is open.
