    Some installations use the ceiling. Some use the side of buildings. Some use the nature. However some, use you! We will discuss how installations cleverly use unusual objects and sometimes even the observers to create art. Have you seen a great installation? Tell me on Instagram!

    Outsider art is art by self-taught or naïve art makers. Typically, those labeled as outsider artists have little or no contact with the mainstream art world or art institutions. An hour and a half to confirm if you fall in this category.
