This two page texture handout asks students to think about what texture is and how it affects our perception of the world. The first page gives some texture vocabulary and asks students to brainstorm different types of textures. This should take about 10-15 min. The second page asks the students to gather and select their own textures, glue them down and then draw them.
To complete this worksheet students will need glue or tape, scissors, and texture samples (leaves, fabric, string, tinfoil, sand, etc...) or they can find photos of textures in magazines. I have given the texture gathering portion of this out as homework so I did not have to provide this in my class. This handout usually takes my students 2-3 hours to fully complete.
I would suggest assigning this worksheet after students have some instruction and practice with mark making/line types and tonal shading.
