RD has been learning about the elements of art. These elements are: lines, shape, space and texture. Texture is used to describe either the way a three-dimensional work actually feels when touched, or the visual “feel” of a two-dimensional work. Take rocks, for example. A real, 3-D rock might feel rough or smooth, and definitely feels hard when touched or picked up. A painter, depicting a rock, would create the illusions of these qualities through use of color, line, shape, etc.
For this lesson, I used the TMA MAPE (music, art and PE) curriculum but I also supplemented it with this powerpoint I found on http://art.pppst.com/elements.html to explain what texture was to him. Click this link to view the powerpoint TEXTURE.
Below is RD’s interpretation of Texture.
