Non Traditional Materials in the Works
Today's artists don't limit themselves to the fine art supplies listed between the pages of an art supply catalog, Instead, they incorporate a wide variety of materials from shells to seeds to screens. For this project I asked students to consider what they might create using non traditional materials. Here are some of their works in progress.
Layering screen to create a value portrait.
Exploring the effects of painting with Q-tips.
