Invigorate your art practice by joining designer and Faber-Castell creative Mou Saha for a month of mixed media exploration. Each day, Mou shares her favorite techniques for adding textures, creating layers, playing with color, and transforming trash into treasure. This series is a skill-building powerhouse that will enhance your mixed media work and open your eyes to new possibilities in your art journal. With enthusiasm and ingenuity, Mou makes it fun and exciting to use familiar materials in new ways and introduces you to a whole host of materials you may have never considered.
Art Journaling with GelatosMou Saha
Mou Saha loves to make mixed media art with gelatos (and no, we’re not talking about ice cream). Gelatos are watercolor sticks that come in chapstick-like tubes, perfect for creating richly layered art journal pages. Mou begins this class by showing how to create a vibrant background using collage and stamps, then she creates patterns and depth with gelatos and stencils to build unexpected designs. Create a focal point on each page with drawings and add text layers with paint or a brush tip marker. By the end of this class, you’ll have the skills you need to create fanciful pages bursting with color and texture.
Art Journaling: Mixed Media on PaperMou Saha
Join designer, coloring book author, and our Daily Drawing Challenge contest winner, Mou Saha, in an artistic exploration of mixed media materials on single art journal pages. Learn how to create rich, layered backgrounds using dyes, draw everyday objects in a simplified form, and add stamped letters to document your day or record an observation. Once you’ve created a focal point, you’ll learn how to finish your pages with doodled details and dimensional elements. Whether you're new to art journaling or a seasoned mixed media artist, you’ll enjoy this playful and experimental way of approaching art.
Make an Altered BoxMou Saha
Learn how to make a customizable keepsake box, ideal for storing your loose art journal pages and small works of art. Designer and avid art journaler, Mou Saha, shows you how to transform a plain paper mache box into a magical book-like box using collage, stencils, paints and stamps. The finished box will be just as gorgeous as the art journal pages you’ll store inside. Downloadable bookplate PDF included with class.
