plastic arts - choose a jigsaw puzzle to solve

Plastic arts are art forms which involve physical manipulation of a plastic medium by moulding or modeling such as sculpture or ceramics. Less often, and less usefully, the term may be used broadly for all the visual arts (such as painting , sculpture , film and photography ), as opposed to literature and music . Materials for use in the plastic arts, in the narrower definition , include those that can be carved or shaped, such as stone or wood , concrete , or metal . The term "plastics" has been used to mean certain synthetic organic resins ever since they were invented, but the term " plastic arts" long preceded them. The term should not be confused, either, with Piet Mondrian's concept of "Neoplasticism".
