Art after school: Texture and mark making, dinosaur skin

Our second week on texture. After reflecting on last weeks activities we took a look at P1060803Albert Durer’s imagined drawing of a rhinoceros. We decided that this drawing wouldn’t feel textured and that the artist had implied texture with mark making.

As a group we imagined dinosaur skin and described it with words and then visually trying to make marks to represent the textures.

The children set up still lifes with model dinosaurs and started making sketches of them using blind drawing techniques. After they worked on a larger scale drawings using their texture ideas to create the dinosaur’s skin.
