This week we learned about a portion of the textures that make up our world. It is amazing how much we use our eyes to describe everything we see or feel. Color is a large part of it.
We started class with a review of the principles that we learned last week: Chromatic Circle, Primary, Secondary, Tertiary and Complimentary colors. The artists covered last week were Warhol, Lichenstein and Mondrian. This was all accomplished through power point slides.
Next was a hands on activity to use our eyes to observe textures. Then on to the hands on experience.
Each child had an opportunity to experience an object and describe the textures that he or she felt.
When they were finished all the papers went outside to be spray painted white. Why? So the color does not distract the eye and the textures can stand out even more.
What are your favorite textures?
