The earliest ceramics were pottery objects, 27,000 year old figurines made from clay, either by itself or mixed with other materials then hardened in fire. Later ceramics were glazed and fired to create a colored, smooth surface. Ceramics now include domestic, industrial and building products as well as art objects.
Painting is the practice of applying paint, pigment, color or other medium to a surface or support base. The application of the medium is commonly applied to the base with a brush but other objects can be used. In art, the term painting describes both the act and the result of the action.
Paper craft is the collection of art forms employing paper or card as the primary artistic medium for the creation of three-dimensional objects. It is the most widely used material in arts and crafts. It lends itself to a wide range of techniques, as it can for instance be folded, cut, glued, molded, stitched, or layered.
Mixed media, in visual art, refers to an artwork in the making of which more than one medium has been employed. Mixed media refers to a work of visual art that combines various traditionally distinct visual art media. For example, a work on canvas that combines paint, ink, and collage.
Photography is the art, science and practice of creating durable images by recording light or other electromagnetic radiation, either electronically by means of an image sensor or chemically by means of a light-sensitive material such as photographic film.
I dream a lot. I do more painting when I\'m not painting. It\'s in the subconscious.
~ Diego Rivera
