The children reflected on last weeks activity and agreed it was all about making marks to resemble texture such as scaly dinosaur skins. This week is about creating actual texture using paint with PVA glue and other textures such as flour and sand as thickeners. We mixed up some colours and had a bit of a messy time experimenting with different tools to make marks.
As the children were celebrating harvest festival we drew and painted some large autumnal sunflower heads using the texture techniques we had practised earlier.
Here are some of our photos, not a great quality as they’re from my mobile but a good use of textured paint.
