I just love sculpturing and texture in paintings....and going about it is also messy and fun! and Children just love getting down and dirty!
The learning objective of this tutorial is that the students will learn the basics of sculpturing and texture.
Children will also be improving their mortar skills and learn about the color pallet.
First have a discussion about various art and sculpture...ask the students what they like about it...
Explain about relief sculpturing which is 2D sculpture and texture which is the perceived surface quality of the art piece...
Sometimes texture in a painting can be given by painting in different ways ...but by giving the art texture in 2D form gives it more depth and beauty.
Perhaps you could go to an art museum and preview a few relief sculpture.....ask your students to keep those pictures in mind...for you want them to recreate some of those texture.
