This is the Best of Creative JumpStart Vol. 2 – a collection of downloadable mixed media lessons from CJS16.

As you may know, I release a new Creative JumpStart each year with a different theme and a big group of talented mixed media artists join me in providing a unique video lesson to help you: “JumpStart YOUR Creativity! In 2021 I will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of the event and leading up to it I wanted to release some of the Best of CJS videos each month, from the archives.

This collection of 12 videos is from the year 2016 and includes a mix of project and technique based lessons to help inspire you. The 2016 theme was Art in Translation and each video was inspired by one of the following artists: Pablo Picasso, Frida Kahlo, Henri Matisse, Anselm Kiefer, or Jean-Michel Basquiat.
