An Evening with Frank Lloyd Wright

Create an architectural mixed media work in an evening setting.

This lesson blends a study of Frank Lloyd Wright's design style with an analysis of the use of lights and darks in an architectural setting, encouraging participants to conceptually reverse them and render the colors to a black surface, transforming the finished piece to a nighttime image. Using only a few materials striking results can be created.

Webinar Objectives

After completing this one hour webinar, participants will be able to...

  • Study the work and history of the architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
  • Analyze color, highlight and shadow.
  • Use perspective and selective composition to render a Frank Lloyd Wright design.
