  • Environmental art forms occupy space and include installations and public art, using materials like wires, junk, and recycled materials.
  • Pictorial art forms use shapes, pictures, and graphics, and include painting, drawing, design, and photography, using materials like cameras, celluloids/negatives, and processing chemicals.
