This comprehensive guide to mixed media is filled with inspiring lessons led by six talented artists, each sharing his or her own unique style and techniques. From large-scale collages and artist trading cards to portraits and still lifes, this book encompasses both abstract and fine-art approaches to mixed media. After learning about a few basic tools and materials, you’ll be invited to try some simple drawing and painting techniques on your own. Then the real fun begins! Each chapter opens with an introduction to the featured artist, followed by an eclectic variety of step-by-step projects. Topics include altering photographs, creating mail art, making poems from daily newspapers, and much more. Comprehensive materials lists are included with each project, while artist tips, suggested color palettes, and detailed sidebars complement the chapters. Whether you are a beginning artist who wants to learn the fundamentals of mixed media or an experienced artist who is eager to learn new approaches to the medium, Mixed Media Workshop has something for everybody.
