Discovering Oneself Through Mixed Media Art

Art is a range of human activity used by the artist to express its imaginary skill through different techniques’. When more than one art form is mixed with another, it is called mixed art. Putting a variety of materials into one another together to make unique pieces is also known as mixed media. Art can be formed from any of the material including fabric, wood, stones, tiles, painted canvases, etc.

Mixed media art classes are a similar form of art. These are originally started from two-dimensional art forms and then widening to other dimensions.
