Texture is one of the Elements of Art. It is used by artists to show how something might feel or what ti is made of. Students drew their hands and then filled them with different types of textures.

For this project we incorporated a graduated value using color pencils.
Elements of Art Accordian Books
Students sarted off the year with a review of the seven elements of art: line, shape, form, color, value, space and texture. The took one object of their choice and used each element to illustrate it.
One Point Perspective Names
Students were introduced to one point perspective. They wrote their names/nicknames in box lettering. Next, they created orthogonal lines back to the vanishing point to make their names look three-dimensional. Inside each letter of their name they drew images that symbolized their personalities. The elements of art used were color, value, and space.
