This is an intro Powerpoint that introduces students to traditional (canvas/wood) and non-traditional surfaces to create art on.
This "expands their horizons" - and shows them that art can be created on just about ANYTHING.
and for each one, it goes through the benefits of working on that surface, as well as many examples of artworks created on that surface.
A follow-up project I do is a non-traditional artwork in grade 11 and 12 - so they have to paint on anything BUT canvas.
They get super creative with it
