Mixed media art refers to a visual art form that combines a variety of media in a single artwork. For example, if you draw with ink, then paint over it with watercolors, and then add some highlights in colored pencil – that's mixed media! Essentially art can be made of anything or any combination of things. The main thing is to create just for the joy of creating. Every time you create, you will learn more about yourself. It is a journey of self- discovery and self-creating. Mixed media meets monthly on the second Friday.
