In this mixed media class, students will push traditional drawing mediums of India ink, charcoal, and graphite into a new and creative direction. With the use of an art journal or sketchbook, we will brush on, splatter, drip, pour, and spray India ink while using charcoal and graphite in unconventional ways. Participants will be guided through an investigation of these materials individually and then in combination, manipulating their properties as they create abstract compositions. The results will lead to visual experiences and self-expression toward's the development of one's voice. 


Please prepare for this online class by ensuring you can secure the necessary materials. with the materials list, links to purchase any necessary items, and other helpful information for class.
