Mixed media art definitely has its place in the art world. The power of this art form is the emphasis on the process as well as the end result. I love the messiness and freedom that mixed media embodies.
Children love this art form because it incorporates diverse mediums in one art piece.
Here are mixed media flowers. These students are 7 year olds.
1. Collage paper
2. Gesso medium
3. Oil pastels
4. 3D flowers from craft store
5. Spray on acrylic paint
6. Tacky glue
My Mantra: Strive to be the best me and improve a little every day. Be compassionate, especially to those who may not practice it. Continue to learn and love. Take a moment multiple times each day to breathe. Forgive myself and forgive others. Read books. Live what I preach. Accept others. And above all, laugh every single day.
