What is Texture?

Texture is how an object or picture feels and looks! Some examples of texture are smooth, rough, crinkled, bumpy. Try to brainstorm some objects with a very distinct texture.


Today’s creative art activity is a coloring page with several basic accessories. Add as much detail as you like to these! Before coloring them, gather some items from around your house that have texture (sandpaper, a lace doily, stencils, a comb, etc.). Place these objects underneath the accessory you want to color and use colored pencils or crayons to go over the picture. This will had texture to each image!
