During this portion of the program you will explore a variety of drawing tools, from charcoal and graphite, to using a proportion tool. You’ll simultaneously be learning to use oil paint, the warm/cool system, and much more. This section is full of foundational knowledge from the old masters that you won’t want to miss.
When you’re finished with this section you’ll have amazing oil paintings to show from it and each of these tools are going to help you get there.
You also have the option to get practically everything in one place. Elli and Dimitra have created a kit that includes everything you need for this section of the program (except canvases) called the Mastery Oil and Drawing Kit. This kit contains all your drawing and painting tools, paints, and mediums, including the Milan Ultimate Oil Set and Milan Mastery Brush set.
Now the fun and expressive part begins! The mixed media section is full of new supplies to enjoy, such as inks, markers, and spray paints! This is where you begin to develop your style and voice as an artist and it will be through these materials that these emerge.
The same as the Mastery Oil and Drawing Kit, Elli and Dimitra have put together their favorite supplies for this section of the program in the Deluxe Mixed Media Kit. This kit comes with premium acrylic paint, high-flows, markers, mediums, and so much more. Everything but spray paints and paper are in this kit.
