A widening knowledge of the variety of media and materials available, coupled with an ability and willingness to experiment with new combinations means that children in middle school have a wide spectrum of artistic choices available to them. From 'classic' media such as pencils and watercolors, through to modern software and graphics packages, children have ample opportunity to choose and adapt media to suit the project in hand.

A finished art project, from inception to completion, may involve using and experimenting with an eclectic combination of two and three dimensional media. Pencil sketches, shading swatches, texture experiments, photography, computer-generated imagery, tracings, clay work and printed images are but a few of the potential stages on the way to a completed project.

Previous work may well have armed the middle school student with a familiarity to certain common media and techniques. They will now be expected to use and control those they are familiar with to achieve certain effects, as well as to predict how others may combine to provide different finishes or textures.
