Visual Art I



Mixed media refers to artwork that incorporates more than one media. For example, using different kinds of papers, textures, objects, paints, colored pencils, and found materials.

Mixed Media

You are telling a story, so think first of your narration of the story you are going to tell. Write a paragraph telling your story. Your image should reflect your story, so it should have metaphors and symbols which represent the story you are telling. The elements and principles of art will also tell your story, so what can you use of these to move the viewer's eye through the composition and get them to understand the story? Post your story with your image. Contrasting things will help get your story across. Don't forget color harmony, compositional movement *visual path - S path, U path, etc) and other movement if necessary, like implied movement, typography to suggest some meaning, but don't spell it out, some found objects to help tell the story. Make it personal so you get close to the story and get the viewer to relate. Use your rule of thirds to make your point of emphasis the first thing the viewer looks at, and then lead your viewer around the composition with secondary point of interest, tertiary point of interest. What objects will you use to help tell your story (make them figurative, not literal).
