First graders are going on "Texture Hunts" this month in art class. They are learning that textures are all around us and that every thing you see and touch has a texture. Texture is an element of art. Below are photos taken during some of the hunts. Students are collecting textures off of various items and then using those texture cards to make a texture collage. Their texture collages are very creative and imaginative!
