Examples of medium are: oil paints, acrylic paints, watercolours, chalk, pencil, and so on (it is a long list). So, basically, the medium is what the artist used to create a work of art.

How is medium related in art?

"Medium" or "media" is the material used to create a piece of artwork. Examples would be oil paint, graphite (pencil), Photoshop, mixed media (combinations of different medias), etc. A medium is related to art, because every piece of art is made out of something in order for it to be visual. An artist's use of a particular media could also say a lot about the artist or their work. For example, an artist may use photography as their medium of choice, because they are interested in capturing the beauties and horrors of life. A medium, in art, may also be a translucent liquid that thins out paint. See "matte medium."

What is the correct plural of the word for medium?

It depends, as 'medium' can mean different things. A person who claims to have psychic powers, or can speak with the dead, can be called a medium. The plural, a group of these people, would be mediums. A material that an artist uses can be called a medium, so you could say an artist uses chalk as his medium. The plural of this would be media.
