Art Journeys Jr. for Grades 4 through High School

With mixed media, anything goes. However, you need to learn some basic techniques such as stenciling, layering, adding paper versus paint, ink or graphite and more. In Art Journeys Jr, students also will learn how to prepare your surface or foundation layer so that it is sturdy enough to accept whatever you throw on top of it without buckling or bending. With that in mind Art Journeys Jr., is all about experimenting and testing on a small scale to examine how the media work together, to make sure you can achieve the desired effect. For instance, applying ink on top of watercolor will have a very different look than watercolor applied on top of ink. Therefore, it is best to fiddle around on a small-scale to figure out how the media interacts, before attempting a large-scale or detailed artwork. By using a combination of media in one artwork, you can utilize the best that each medium has to offer!

Each student will receive a blank art journal of sturdy paper designed for mixed media techniques and materials such as image transfer, stenciling, acrylic mediums, and mark making utensils. Students will also learn the basics of composition, design, placement and color. At the end of the course, students will have created a unique resource to refer to for future projects. Students can repeat this course as often as they wish. There are so many different techniques to explore we will barely scratch the surface in just one course.
