How to Define Your Medium
Here are some guidelines for defining art mediums:
- Original Painting– Oil, watercolor, pastel, pen-and ink, charcoal, acrylic, etc. Include the type of substrate (e.g., Oil on canvas, Oil on board, watercolor on paper, etc).
- Mixed media – using watercolor, gouache, colored pencil, collage, painting on photograph, etc. Note: All Mixed media pieces must define the different media used (e.g., pastels on watercolor, watercolor on ink, collage of acrylics and newsprint, oil paint on photographic print, etc).
- Sculpture– Bronze, stone, wood, etc.
- Ceramics – Raku, stoneware, porcelain including firing techniques like high, low, electric kiln etc.
- Fiber Art – weaving, batik, basketry, quilts including type of fiber material.
- Fine Art Print – Serigraph (silk screen), lino-print, woodcut print, etching, engraving, etc.
- Monoprint – Defined as one of a series of reproductions of original artwork in which each print has some individual and unique differences of color, design, texture, etc., applied to the underlying common image.
- Digital Painting – Paintings or drawings done by hand on a computer using software painting and drawing tools. Note: Capable of being printed more than once. Describe type of print (e.g., Ink jet print of a digital painting).
- Computer-generated Representation – Illustrations generated directly by the computer from mathematical equations. Note: Capable of being printed more than once. Describe type of print (e.g., Ink jet print from computer-generated representation of a mathematical equation).
