SCAD Workshop at AOMA

December 6, Friday, 4:00 – 6:00 pm

“Color as Light”

 Whether the media is painting, pastel or pencil, capturing the illusion of light is a challenge for anyone using color. This workshop will introduce the basics of color in representational drawing using chalk pastel, in which participants are encouraged to use the formal properties of color (hue, value, and intensity), as well as temperature, as a structural tool to create the illusion of form and depth.  

Dale Clifford 

Dale Clifford is currently the Dean of Academics at SCAD/Atlanta.

Aside from as an artist, Clifford has played an instrumental role over the past year in developing the updated portfolio rubrics to be implemented in the 2019-20 academic year.
