#3: TEXTURE

THIS IS ONE ACTIVITY FOR ALL AGE GROUPS
First I talk to them about texture, and then I take them on a tour of my garden, showing them different textures found in nature. I also show them various textures from my home such as a sponge, paintbrush bristles etc.

Finished piece: A mix between Van Gogh’s painting with a local twist (and simplified).
They can choose how much details, how bright or dark to use colours, etc.
