Imagine its the first day of Art class and as you walk into the room, you fall down and break your arm! How would you make art? That's a problem. Now, imagine if you went to the store and bought the biggest bag of Skittles in the world... only to find out you have a cavity and can't eat them. What do you do with all that candy? That's a problem!
In today's unit, we will take a look at how you can create art through limitations. I know, that sounds crazy! If you have a limitation, how can you create art?
Well, watch this short video and you'll see how artists not only solve the problems of limitations, but even come up with their own limitations, on purpose, to make art!
