3rd Grade - Using Texture in our artworks

Grade 3 - Senufo, Mud Cloths

Using line to imply texture in artwork. 
Using fabric and fringe for added textural interest. 

      We drew our plant and animal designs on paper first. We knew that "folk art" is not realistic, so most of us invented animals using our wonderful imaginations! Our line pattern created representations of texture in our design.

     Our designs were traced on fabric with permanent marker and then painted with watercolor. We used opposite colors to create a much richer mud color than we could have if we used brown straight from our pallets! It took time and patience to pull threads from our fabric edges for fringe!
