2011 free for all! In this section you are allowed to use any media on anyway you wish. The theme for this section is The Creation of Art. Now, in this section, we dont want just any old picture and we dont want just a finished product. In this section we are asking you to show us HOW you created that picture. Show us HOW you put that physical media piece together. Write us a poem about HOW art is created. We want the process not the end. So, for example you can take a picture of someone painting or use a tutorial deviation.
