The Artist Toolbox: Texture: Get inspired by artists like MC Escher, Frida Kahlo, Salvatore Dali and Leonardo Davinci as we explore the best methods to make textures a part of your art toolbox. Learn how and where to include texture, shading and highlights. Work in a variety of media, including pen, pencil, colored pencils, charcoal and scratch board.

The Artist Toolbox: Color: Take a deep dive into the ways artists use colors to move your eye across a canvas to capture your undivided attention.
