Extra Texture

Second graders looked at two paintings and compared and contrasted them. One was realistic, and the other abstract. Then we all experimented with making abstract portraits.
To add texture, we used texture plates. We learned that texture is "how something feels" or "how it looks like it feels." Sometimes art has texture and sometimes artists create illusions of texture. When we place the plates under the drawings and color, we are making texture rubbings.
