The purpose of this creative project was to explore various ways of using acrylic paint other than the traditional methods of direct application to canvas or paper and produce a suite of fifteen mixed media drawings using methods developed during the creative project. With the drawings produced during the creative project the writer discovered a new approach in using acrylic polymers. Subtle relationships of color, texture, value, and spacial illusion were achieved through the use of this method. The technique involved making a thin sheet of nonsoluable, flexible acrylic, cutting it, manipulating it, and applying it to a sheet of paper. Through the creative project the writer explored riew concepts in composition and personal imagery. Work completed during the project yielded over one hundred drawings. Works from the project have been exhibited regionally and nationally. Two pieces were included in Indiana Artists Exhibition in 1983 and two others were purchased by the Evansville Museum for their permanent collection.
