Workshop Description 

“Color as Light”: Whether the media is paint, 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.
