Discover the no-rules approach to creativity as artist Tracy Jacobs guides you through essential mixed-media art techniques. Start the class with a black-and-white composition, and explore pencil, pen and ink techniques to create bold textures. Find out how to mix stunning shades of a single hue as you progress to a monochromatic work, and experiment with rubber stamps, paint washes and markers for eye-catching designs. Dive into basic color theory with your final project and learn how to select a captivating, cohesive color scheme. Play with stickers, stippling and collaging to complete your third composition with vibrant style. In just one class, you'll finish three beautiful pieces you'll be proud to hang in your home!
Meet your instructor, mixed media artist Tracy Jacobs, before diving into the first of three projects you'll make in class. You'll explore achromatic (black and white) techniques as Jones walks you through transfer methods and ways to play with value in pen and ink, graphite and more.
Continue to refine your achromatic piece with Tracy's expert tips along the way. You'll add chunky texture using basic household items, and really begin to experiment with mixed media as you add tracing paper, glue, crayons, acrylic paint and more. You'll love the finished piece, which incorporates techniques ranging from stippling to wax resist!
Explore an entirely new take on your armchair scene as you start a monochromatic work. Tracy walks you through the most important considerations for working with a monochromatic palette as you lay in the chair, floor and wall. Then develop interesting patterns using contrasting values as you lay in Tracy's butterfly pattern, or any other design of your choosing.
