Beyond technique and experimental approaches, visual art takes critical thinking to a whole other level. Visual artists have access to studios in drawing, painting, printmaking and hand built clay work. They derive inspiration from pieces by fellow artists, and from the natural world around us, to develop a critical eye to design and execute unique works.
My daughter draws and her medium is usually markers. Last night when she was telling someone she is an artist and they asked what her medium is, she replied, paints, charcoal, and markers. That is huge.
