Kim Kelly collects many elements to make a mixed media collage canvas

Mixed Media Canvas – Have Faith

For this month’s project Kim Kelley decided to try something a bit different on this canvas, instead of using products that were all the same color and style; She chose anything she found in her drawers and jars. Found some metal pieces, flowers of different sizes and some charms to go with the faith theme, all to go into this mixed media canvas.

The Importance of Using Symbols

Symbols are a teaching tool, and as such are indispensable when it comes to artistic expression. Artists can teach absolute truths indirectly by incorporating symbols into their art. Anjuli Johnson talks about a few of the ways she has added symbolic meaning to her art, and how each of us can share our ideas of absolute truth with our audience through the intentional use of symbols.
