Texture and Movement!

November 14, 2012 • Passport To Preschool

We recently spent a week combining texture and movement into our studies and projects at Passport 2 Preschool, as we though that they often go hand-in-hand.

Animal skin collages got us thinking about our sense of touch, while dried beans pressed into air dry clay were an example of how we can create our own unique textures and patterns.

For movement, we let gravity do some of the work for us as we dripped paint from droppers and bottles onto our papers, and also tipped and turned them to let the paint flow in different directions. We also let our students think about the moving process of drawing, using our lightbox to illuminate the creations.
