Mixed Media

Mix Media Art includes visual art materials with non visual elements such as literature, music, drama, dance, interactivity and more. It helps us think outside the box and outside the traditional fine art methods. Playing with textures using cloth, paper, wood, found objects and making collages and assemblages are common forms of mix media


3D Objects

Create 3 Dimensional art objects such as sculptures made out of wood, paper, clay or found objects. They are displayed, touched, moved and seen from all angles. It helps our students to recognize and understand 3D forms, contours,  light, shadows and how things can stand by itself, how things connect to each other and how different materials work
