Drawing & Painting - Mixed Media

We will cover all the basics and teach you how to lay out a mixed media art piece, step-by-step. You’ll learn about common materials and how each media within the piece works and interacts with the others.


  • Create a collage base on canvas
  • Affix crayon wax to a piece
  • Use stencils to add texture and/or imagery
  • Add texture with gesso and impasto mediums
  • Apply ink
  • You will learn which materials work well together and get lots of tips you can use when creating pieces in the future.

Even the most inexperienced beginner will develop a new appreciation for the art form and learn skills they can use to start making their own mixed media art.
