What is altered art?

When we tried to answer the apparently simple question 'What is altered art?' by putting these words into the major search engines, we didn't find much actual information, mostly just a load of websites that were obviously Altered board book 'Memories' by Maria Adams trying to sell us something, and artists' blogs that didn't really explain anything.

That's why we decided to set up this website: to explain to those who don't know about altered art what it is, and how to do it. Don't worry, though, if you already know a bit about it, because we'll be catering for you too.

Here at altered-art.net we are on hand to answer all your questions about this exciting form of creative expression, as well as other related forms, like art dolls, mixed-media art, artist trading cards, ArtSquared and mail art, that are becoming increasingly popular.

We hope that there will be something here for more experienced artists, for those just starting out on the path, and also for those who just want to know more.
