Materials are Mixed Media, so anything goes. This is a process, so allow students time and freedom to explore their imaginations.
Open Ended, is usually a student directed process, where they can draw their feelings, emotions, reactions to the art work in the blanks provided. They can choose to copy the designs, outlines the shapes/forms, or even just draw one aspect. Open ended is not assessed and there is no right or wrong. Just encourage active participation in some form. Please download my free "Art is...Open-Ended" information sheet.
