Children will have used and learned a variety of artistic techniques and processes in elementary school. Experimenting with a variety of media is an important part of creative development as children learn new techniques by learning how to control and change materials in order to produce the effect or finish they want.
By the time students reach middle school, they will be expected to understand a widening variety of different techniques, which may have been learned and developed through sessions aimed at experimentation.
A firm grasp of different techniques and an understanding of when they may be appropriate will help a developing artist create work which is creative, appropriate and stimulating. A willingness to push boundaries, blend unusual media and challenge traditional techniques is what has helped the visual arts develop and evolve over time. In order to do this, however, all artists must first develop a good understanding of the wide variety of techniques available to them.
