Your artful adventure begins here! Are you inspired by mixed-media art but don't know how to begin to create your own? Adventures in Mixed Media Art is the ultimate guidebook for beginning your mixed-media adventure! Starting with a few motivational readings, not only will you harness the creative energy you already have, you'll also learn how to keep that energy flowing for years to come as you figure out what sparks your fire.
