By Linda C. Joseph - Posted May 1, 2017

For May 1, 2017: Using the Artist's Toolkit, from nonprofit ArtsConnectEd (and soon to be hosted at the Minneapolis Institue of Art website), discover the tools of the trade like line, color, and balance to build works of art. As you explore the toolkit you can watch as art is created, find the same elements in other works of art, and design your own work using an interactive palette along with the elements and principles that were demonstrated. Videos show artists in action and the processes they use for producing art. Rounding out the site is an encyclopedia that includes definitions and visual demonstrations of the artistic concepts.
