Discover your students’ potential using three mediums to create a beautiful mixed media drawing!  Students will use the creative process to apply their knowledge of value and texture using three mediums of charcoal, ink, and colored pencil. 

Students apply compositional rules and learn about variety/contrast and unity in art in the process of creating their final artwork. The final results are a show stopper! The lesson is best taught after the basics of drawing: value, line, texture, and all the mediums have been covered.

Students will love choosing their focus subject for these three medium pieces, as well as creating value scales and shaded spheres. The results will amaze them as they demonstrate an understanding of composition while creating details with charcoal, ink, and colored pencil. 



“This was an outstanding lesson. This is my first year teaching art with no background in art, lol. This has not only been a lifesaver, but really pulled artistic thought and ability out of my students. The slides were easy to follow and incredibly helpful. The finished projects are truly amazing.” - Chelsea S. 


“This is a great resource and a really fun project. The slides are very well done and my students benefitted from the step by step instructions, loads of examples and the practice / planning exercises. I will use this again for sure!”- Caribou Corner of Junction North


“This is a fave drawing piece of both my students and I. I've used it a couple of times now and have had great success! Thank you!” - Julia O.
