Mixed Media
Mixed media in art refers to a work of art which was created by using a combination of more than one medium. The term is not to be confused with "multimedia art" which implies a broader scope of mixed media, combining visual art with non-visual elements or with elements of the other arts such literature, drama, dance or music.

Using mixed media in your art work can give your work a variety of interesting effects and combining found objects in the mixed media work will often add deeper levels of meaning to the work. | Contact Us | List Your Art | List Your Art Gallery | Site Map
