Mixed Media

Mixed Media refers to creating work that combines traditional, distinct visual art media – like charcoal, inks, and acrylics—in the same physical artwork. Although Mixed Media can be traced back to the Byzantine Empire in the 3rd century, it came to the forefront of the public eye more as a coined art term with the popularity of collage in the early decades of the 1900’s due to artists like Braque and Picasso. Mixed Media works are as varied as the mediums and artists themselves, and our Mixed Media free art lessons are no different! Follow along and experiment with professional working artists, as they demonstrate all sorts of techniques and different medium combinations.
