In this fun and vibrantly illustrated guide, mixed media artist, Karen Campbell, spells out her exact art supply layering system in simple to follow steps, likening her entire approach to that of layers of a hamburger! Using a combination of fun graphics and short, concise directions, this wonderfully entertaining book outlines, in a very simple way, the same system Karen has used for years to create hundreds of awesome art projects that have been featured in magazines and books worldwide!
Despite the book playful and creative laid out, this book is an absolute treasure trove of information. Artists of all abilities will learn the key differences between artist grade and craft grade supplies, the importance of understanding product "behavior" and how to account for its "behavior" so that there are no unexpected surprises! Readers also learn the what, when, why, where and how they should use collage elements, specific products for desired effects, and the appropriate sealers and finishers for every step of the "burger"!
To make these steps even clearer, Karen has provided links to free, entertaining and educational videos that expound upon every layer of the Hamburger System! Visitors to her YouTube videos will also have the chance to communicate directly with Karen, to ask questions and seek further clarification about each step. Artists following the exact 7 layer process laid out in Karen's easy to follow instructions are guaranteed to create some seriously awesome mixed media masterpieces! Let the fun begin!
Karen Campbell (Awesome Art School owner) has been teaching art both in-person and online since 2011. She focuses her efforts on making sure students are having fun so that they will want to learn and practice more! Her styles and mediums vary widely (which makes it fun for both her and her students!) and loves to come up with "systems" for layering and drawing to make learning easy! She has written, illustrated and published over two dozen art-related books/journals. Since founding her Awesome Art School in 2015 she has impacted the lives of tens of thousands of students through her educational art books, YouTube videos and courses and memberships. She is a native of New England and currently lives in North Carolina with her husband, Sean, 3 boys, dog, Maggie and 3 feline besties (Rosie, Zoe and Tippie!).
Lucy Brydon (Lucy's Art Lab owner) taught for 15 years as a primary school art specialist before venturing off to make and sell her art full-time. She has taught adults both online and in-person for 7 years and specializes in gelli printing, watercolor and gouache. Her artwork is inspired by Scottish folklore, fairy tales, nature and illustrations. She lives in Scotland surrounded by ancient magical forests and ruined castles and with cat, Sabby and her grown-up son.
Karen and Lucy met online around 2015 and in person (on a Scottish Art Retreat) in 2017 and have been fast friends ever since!
