Adult Studio Art Workshop (via Zoom)


When color is the main event in a work of art, paying attention to the structure “behind the scenes” can be an interesting exercise. Looking at a black and white reproduction of Brad Eberhard’s Foreign Affairs (2008) oil on canvas on board, learn how to break down the lines, shapes, and dark to light values that add dynamism to the composition.
