Welcome to the expressive drawing, painting, and mixed media techniques masterclass! In this online artistic drawing and painting course, you will apply creativity and learn various dynamic mark making techniques in various drawing, painting, and mixed media projects.

You will learn how materials such as graphite, charcoal, watercolor paint, acrylic paint, India ink, ink pens and markers, and pastel can work individually or with each other in order to produce beautiful, amazing works of art. There are specific considerations for each of these materials, and by completing this course, you will become a "materials master"! I also show how to use optional materials such as water, rubbing alcohol, acetone, denatured alcohol, vellum paper, unique mark making tools such as feathers and mop brushes, and masking materials such as painter's tape, rubber cement, and masking fluid.

However, if you only have access to paper, pencil, and some paint such as watercolor or acrylic, that is okay as well! I demonstrate these techniques and how they can be applied across a variety of mediums with a variety of mark making, erasing, and blending tools.

This course also allows you to practice creativity and expressiveness as you draw and paint in various artistic projects.

By the time you complete this expressive drawing and painting course, you will have produced a portfolio of amazing drawings, paintings, and mixed media works of art, including expressive and creative landscapes, portraits, still life drawings, and much, much more.

Once you enroll in this course, you get:

  • Lifetime access to all of the content, including over 8 hours of on-demand, helpful video demonstrations and instruction.

  • Various PDF handouts and support files.

  • Access to our exclusive Drawing Club forum, for helpful feedback and critique from peers and me, the instructor of this course, Jonathan Simon.

After the introduction section (where we provide helpful considerations of mark making and materials), the sections in this drawing course focus on specific projects, so you can follow along with my demonstration. Each section includes a material list and support files:

Expressive Ink Pen Eye Drawing with Watercolor - You will draw and paint an fun, beautiful, and expressive drawing and painting of an eye using various materials, including watercolor paint and ink pen and optional materials (salt and gesso).

Flowing Fish Drawing with Color Wash - By the time you have completed this project, you will have learned various relevant mark making, drawing, painting, blending, and erasing techniques and how to effectively transfer images. You will also learn flowing drawing techniques for the fish drawing and various ways to produce a beautiful watercolor wash.

Ink and Watercolor Expressive Portrait - During this project, you will learn how to produce an interesting, expressive portrait drawing and painting, by using various dynamic mark making and painting methods with ink and watercolor.

Atmospheric Ink Landscape with Acrylic Wash - You will draw an interesting landscape composition using ink, then we will apply a color wash using acrylic paint. Considerations of using ink and acrylic together as we draw and paint are included.

Ink and Pastel Artistic Tulip Landscape - In this project, you will draw an artistic landscape with colorful ink and add tulips with bright pastels. Material- and tool-specific considerations are included. Have fun!

Charcoal Still Life with Masking Methods - You will learn charcoal mark making methods and assorted masking techniques to produce an artistic  still life drawing. We will then show how to safely tear and burn the edges for artistic effect.

Final Project: Portrait and Cityscape Artwork - In this final project of this course, we will use a variety of materials and methods used earlier in the course to produce an expressive portrait with a cityscape background. We will add layers of ink, charcoal, pastel, and gesso using two photos as reference.

Enroll now and get started producing amazing, beautiful works of art! We'll see you in the course. There is a 30-day money-back guarantee, so if you don't like the course, you can get a refund. But we know you'll love this course, as you produce awesome drawings, paintings, and mixed media art projects in this course.

Please note that anyone who wants to draw or paint expressively can join this course, but if you have trouble drawing the eye or face in three of the projects, we suggest you enroll in our Drawing Masterclass, which is an unofficial prerequisite for this course. It is not required, and we show you in this expressive course how to use tracing and transferring methods instead of sketching from reference or imagination, but just in case, this is an FYI. We do not go over the forms and subforms of the eye in this course, since it is more about expanding beyond that and drawing expressively and creatively and adding to the representational drawings and paintings that we produce in this course. Our other course can be found here on Udemy by clicking on our profiles.

  • The various computer tools and traditional tools you will need to create t-shirt designs.

  • How to incorporate hand-drawn effects into a computer-based design

Here are some recent reviews from  ART STUDENTS:

★★★★★ "EASY TO FOLLOW"

I have been a Bob Ross certified instructor for 26 years and I have taught in various venues. Kelly is very clear in her instructions and she makes it easy to follow what she is doing. The class is simple enough for beginners and yet she gives the student plenty of room for creating a little on their own. The instruction on the supplies was also clear and easy to follow.

~Cherly M.

★★★★★ "ENJOYED"

"I enjoyed doing this this painting. I am new to watercolor. Was able to follow, having to go back occasionally. Will probably do this painting several times just for the practice. I contacted the Kellie Chasse sight because of interest in alcohol oil painting. So will be an active student for awhile to come. Thank you for a great beginning!!"  

~Kathleen F.

★★★★★ "BIG HELP"

"Because everything was explained so simply, and Kellie's painting in real time was a very big help. I intend to take more of her courses in the future."

Mixed media collage art is an introduction to the world of collage. This easy step-by-step guide will take you through the process of creating an art work. All the materials used are explained in conversational terms that anyone can understand.

You will be able to see each step in video format. The other information is explained with text, voice and photographs of artwork created in this manner. The course is structured in a series of easy to follow lessons. The whole course, if followed according to each step can take a minimum of three days. First, we create our own painted papers that have to dry overnight. Then we collage the papers and those have to dry overnight too. On the third day, we add details and embellishments. You can take as much time as you like for each step but drying time is needed in between steps.

This course is for anyone interested in creating artwork that is unique. Each piece created is different and totally personal.

Students: 269, Price:  Paid

Have you ever dreamed of making your own, one of a kind, special doll? Then keep reading, because I created the perfect workshop, just for you.

Besides from painting, doll making has always been a lifelong passion of mine. When I was little I used to cut the models from my grandmother’s JC Penney Catalog and pretended they came to life as something I could touch and hold, not just look at.

Making a doll fulfilled that desire, creating something out of nothing brings joy to my heart like nothing else. It's a very different feeling from painting, because my idea gets to be something much more tangible and real than just an image you look and fall in love with. You can touch it, play with it and love it. I love that feeling, and I want to share how I feel with you.

Join me in this amazing workshop as I guide you through the process I go trough when I sit down on my studio to create a doll. From tracing the pattern into the fabric to the final embellishing touches. I'll show you how I use an alchemy of mixed media techniques when I sew, paint, dress up and embellish my creations, and by the end of the workshop you will be able to create your own beautiful one-of-a-kind doll.

I will give you the basics and with that, the power to transform the doll into anything you want it to be. To each doll, its own story.

More than just a painting class, I will show you the mixed media techniques I use on my paintings to journey through my process for creating mixed media art as an outlet for my dreams, my worries and my imagination to create art with a personal and distinctive style that you will love to call your own.

This course consists on 5 sections of inspiration

  • Color and Inspiration. In this week we will get inspired! We'll search for those things that really put us in a creative mood and learn how to start and keep a color diary. We'll also explore our personal symbols and begin shaping your true voice.
  • Backgrounds. We can stay in this topic forever! Backgrounds are my favorite thing to paint and collage and we will have lots of fun creating different backgrounds and papers for our mixed media pieces and art journals during this week.
  • Art Journaling. I find that keeping an art journal has helped me grow as an artist and find my true voice and I want to share that experience with you. In this week we will learn more about art journaling. We will play with our materials as preparation to paint and have lots of fun.
  • From sketchbook to canvas. In this week we will begin to construct a mixed media piece from scratch. Follow me as I guide you through my process, from finding the idea to translating it to canvas.
  • Putting it all together. In our last week we will continue working in our pieces. I'll show you my method to finish a piece and we will have our show and tell. It will be a lot of fun and I can't wait to see what you create from your heart in this class!

Students: 83, Price:  Paid

In this class you are going to learn how to turn a simple brochure and some found papers - e.g. off cuts, scrap paper, wrapping paper, tissue paper, magazine images, book pages, used envelopes, maps, sheet music - into a personalised Inspiration Journal.

This Inspiration Journal is for you, but you could create a journal like this tor a family member or friend.

It is to remind you of all the things you love doing, all the things that make you happy. It's to celebrate your achievements,rather than focus on all the things that are still on your to do list.

It's to remind you that you are enough and that you are doing your best, to not compare yourself and your life to other peoples (especially with social media telling us on a daily basis how perfect everybody else seems to be.

The creating of this journal is an act of mindfulness, and and act of self care.

This journal is there for you to look at when you are having a bad day and are full of doubt, it is there to remind you how strong you are, that things are going to get better and that you make a difference in this world.

The class has been divided into two parts.

Part One focuses on the creation of the journal and teaches you simple mixed media techniques to cover the pages and get the brochure ready for journaling.

Part Two works with the journal prompts (you will find a PDF file with journal  prompts, quotes and poems in the Class Project section) and is going to show you how you can work with these journal prompts to create beautiful page spreads.

This class is suitable for all levels. Advanced learners could easily incorporate further or more mixed media techniques to their journal.

I really hope you like the idea of creating your very own Inspiration Journal and I'm looking forward to seeing you in my class.

With Watercolor and Gouache

Students: 14, Price:  Paid

Whether you’re traveling to beautiful landscapes, or just sitting on your own front porch, you’ve probably wanted to capture the natural scenery around you in your sketchbook. Landscapes have always been a favorite subject of artists.

The challenge is to find a way to really make them your own.

So in this class, we’re going to work in either watercolor or gouache-your choice—and then bring in mixed media, in the form of colored pencil, markers, paint pens, or ink.

With tools like these you can make quick, playful scribbles, add layers of texture, bring in highlights and shadows, and make something that’s really fun and has some spirit and some personality to it.

In this class, we’ll focus on:

  • Discovering your go-to choices for blues and greens, the most common colors you’ll use in most landscapes

  • How to make choices about what to leave in and what to leave out.

  • Understanding where to place the horizon line

  • Distinguishing between the foreground, middle, and background to give a landscape a sense of depth.

  • Taking a very simple approach to skies in this class, because this time, we’re going to let the land be the star of the show.

  • Using mark-making with mixed media tools to let your own style shine through

And I’ll show you my favorite trick for getting over that fear of messing up a perfect blank page!

Hey you! Yes, YOU. Grab that piece of line art you have lying around that's been gathering dust and let's start recycling! I want to show you a great way to create a mixed media art piece…

…and we will do that digitally!

Mixed media art refers to artwork which combines more than one medium. For example, a drawing that combines color pencils, watercolors and inks in the same canvas. Digital Mixed Media is no different. The challenge is, of course, to create what looks to have been done with many mixed techniques, and how to accomplish that with a stylus and a paint program. Well the secret is, of course, digital brushes which mimic the real thing! There is no shortage of digital brushes being sold on the marketplace today, but why buy when Photoshop has hundreds of built in brushes by the king of digital painting, Kyle Webster himself! The key is being able to control the brushes and customize them to do exactly what you need them to. If you want to learn how brush settings affect the look of the paint strokes, you may like this new course I am offering, Using Photoshop Brushes for a Mixed Media Painted Repeat Pattern… Colorizing Line Art with Authentic Painterly Techniques.

I will teach you how to enhance your existing line art into a digital mixed media design masterpiece. You can apply this to surface pattern design, as I have, or simply apply the techniques to any line art piece you have. Instead of starting from scratch, jump right into the fun of mixed media digital painting by working directly with a finished line art. This mixed media approach will free you up creatively and have you feeling inspired! Since you already have a finished drawing, you will be able to fully explore different creative outcomes. And with Photoshop and Kyle Webster’s brushes, this is made easy. It’s your choice! I have created this class as a follow up to the class Sketchbook Art to Final Repeat Pattern class, but it can stand alone as well. Enrolling in this easy-to-follow class will inspire you to create a wide range of digital mixed-media pieces using custom brushes, textured backgrounds, great color schemes, and all with your own line art. We'll explore how experimenting with new textures and colors, values, and many other factors, can improve that existing piece.

Throughout the class, I will be giving you tours of my own sketchbook practice, with natural media, and explain how it feeds my commercial work. Knowing how the real thing feels helps me do a better job with the digital brushes, and I know how to advise you to get the essence of mixed media work. This is a great introduction to painting in Photoshop as well as Kyle’s brushes.

As far as prerequisite skills, I would recommend some knowledge of Photoshop with the goal of wanting to learn additional techniques. In class, we’ll talk about both design and technical aspects of creating this type of digital mixed media work. I will demonstrate at a reasonable pace so that it will be easy to follow along. I suggest pausing and repeating sections and possibly even slowing the speed in your browser when trying to work through any difficult parts. Adobe Photoshop is required for this class as we are using specific settings and brushes only available for this software. This course is for all levels; I recommend being acquainted with Photoshop somewhat, and, also knowing the basic principles of creating images, but most steps are explained very thoroughly.

The key concepts I will include:

· Adjusting setting on brushes including texture, color dynamics and brush tip shape

· methods to edit images and create simple masks made from selections

· working with flow and opacity to create transparency effects

· playing with hue and saturation to affect scatter brushes and provide texture

· mixer brushes and smudge brushes

· good examples, reference and inspiration for reinforcing the goal

Don’t worry if you have always wondered how to achieve traditional techniques but don’t own a tablet or Procreate. You will find that Photoshop is the most powerful natural media software on the planet. Let’s have you creating incredible mixed media pieces this week, with this class. Having art with your beautiful new techniques absolutely do-able with this small investment of time. Let’s get this party started!

Introduction and Overview

In this lesson, I will explain the goals for the class and I will share examples of my work. We will discuss the main techniques we will be using in this class.

Lesson 1: Review and Overview

In this lesson, we will go through the initial steps of preparing the art. I give you a quick look at my art journals to explain my process and I will talk about how Kyle Webster’s brushes will help me to create a mixed media look.

Lesson 2: Document Set-up and Action Plan

For this lesson, we will go through the process of preparing the elements and I will show you more in my art journals. I will explain my brush choices, how to download more brushes and we’ll take about texture settings, shape dynamics and brush tip settings.

Lesson 3: Discovering Brush Settings with Gouache

This lesson will have us exploring more brush settings. I will also show you a method to place a repeat of the pattern in the background to make painting the mixed media back-drop easier.

Lesson 4: Experiments with Glaze and Brush Settings

We continue exploring the brushes and experimenting here with settings like flow and transparency, as well as brush blending modes. We also touch on document settings such as making layers and groups to help keep us organized. In this lesson, you also learn about masking techniques, selections, saving selections and loading selections. I will also explain how to stay away from unprintable colors.

Lesson 5: Watercolour, Bright Ink and Spatter

In this lesson, we will add more texture using the spatter brushes. I will explain settings that may seem mysterious on the brush panel and explain more about the color dynamics. You will see how to add tons of texture easily to your background.

Lesson 6: Textural and Other Details

For this lesson, we will go through a bunch of experiments with the brush settings. I will explain the thrash blend and mixer brush controls, and how to sample from all layers. I also introduce my favorite brush, the Comic BG brush by Kyle.

Lesson 7: Adjustments, Fine Tuning and Details

We continue using the brushes to add details and more fine-tuning to our adjustments. We will create a mask using the Save Selection function. I will explain different ways of using and loading the selection.

Lesson 8: Testing and Perfecting

In this lesson, we will do some of the edge painting and will work with smooth and flow settings again. We talk about why we should preserve edit features. We play around with the color scheme, changing it considerably, and then we test the pattern repeat in full color.

Lesson 9: Finessing and Color Adjusting Final Pattern Tile

For this lesson, we will discuss next steps and wrap-up. I will show you the different pattern color choices I created on several mockups so you can see the full effect. Thanks so much for being here! Hope to see you in many other classes!

Students: 8, Price:  Paid

In this class, Intuitive Mixed Media, you will learn how to use a variety of materials to create your artwork.

Mixed media described any artwork that was created using more than one medium. Note that "media" is the plural of medium. For our class we will be focusing on 2D mixed media approaches.

We will start with wet media, which includes anything that needs to "dry." Materials such as water color, India ink and even acrylic paint will be discussed.

Next we will discuss dry media--anything that is dry, so materials like charcoal, colored pencil, pastel, graphite and much more. You will learn how to combine dry and wet media in collaborative ways and be able to see the pros and cons of each material.

We will finish up the class by going over digital and analog collage techniques. I will be using Procreate for the digital portion but you can use what you have available.
