<< Doing a texture lesson in my art club next week for elementary students.
Will
be giving them some textures to draw using observational skills. However I
am
not sure if it is good to do more than one texture during the meeting? What
ya think? Any ideas on doing more with texture for drawing?
Thanks so much.

I recently attained a large quantity of "goose gourds" from a local gardener.
They are dried, and light tan in color. After washing them, "experiencing"
them and drawing them just one time, I am going to incorporate a Texture
lesson...I am going to have students "create" the illusion of a texture on the
surface of the gourds...with marker, paint, etc. What do you think? Am a
little worried about this. (These are 6th Graders...a big class, in need of
challenging.) Wondering if I should just have them paint them, and have fun
with just that. Had this idea a while ago, and I am still debating. I
thought feathers, ruffles, lines, etc., would be a unique approach to these
beautiful gourds, and just in time for Thanksgiving/Holiday gift giving,
rather than seeming too crafty with "put an eye on each side, then tie a bow
on the neck." That is what the woman who grows them and sells them does with
each one. Any comments? Need to know by next week!
