Mixed Media Basics

4 PD Hours

  • 1 Learn the basics of mixed media processes.

  • 2 Explore how to incorporate mixed media lessons into your curriculum.

One of the things art teachers do best is get creative with the materials that they use with their students—and mixed media is perfect for showing off that creativity! In this PRO Pack, you’ll gain the confidence to introduce the basic techniques and beginning processes of working with mixed media. Discover specific tips for the materials and surfaces that work best, techniques that will engage your students, and how to keep a myriad of materials organized. You will finish the Pack with project ideas that you can immediately implement into your curriculum.

Jennifer Russell

High School Art Teacher and PRO Facilitator

With an impressive amount of visual overstimulation and color, Jenn Russell welcomes her students into her art room at Hebron High School in the Lewisville Independent School District. She loves jokes of the popsicle stick variety, chocolate, tchotchkes, and color (did we mention that?). She is a newly minted and still lost on a daily basis mom to a little boy named Nate, or #ARussellSprout as he is known to his followers. When she has time, you can find her reading, dabbling with pencils or in the great Texas outdoors with her camera.
