Mixed Media

In the arts world, mixed media art is when a work consists of more than one medium in its finished product. This could mean adding metal, cloth, or other types of materials to traditional paint on canvas, but it could literally be any combination of elements imaginable. This allows the artist to not only experiment with different compositions, but also different dimensions on what is normally a two-dimensional plane, such as a canvas. Mixed media art has also been known to experiment with sound in addition to visual elements. It truly is one of the most experimental and boundless forms of creativity that can be found in the arts today.
