Lafayette first graders just finished dabbling in the world of TEXTURE!!!First we explored tactile texture that we can touch with our hands... finding it everywhere... even on our shoes!
After exploring how artists made visual texture we can see with our eyes, we created our own visual texture rubbings.
|...we noticed that Sofonisba Anguisola's |
Self Portrait is
full of visual texture like scratchy lace
and smooth skin, soft hair
and a furry collar...
|...we created visual texture out of tactile texture|
Our rubbings became delightful sea creatures inspired by Eric Carle's textured paper cutouts:
|Our visual texture sea creatures took on some |
tactile texture add ons!
And finally, did anyone say habitats?
