Playing with texture

Today we went outside the classroom hunting different textures and used a technique called "frotagge" rubbing a crayon over different surfaces. We talked about tactile (we can feel) and visual (we can only see) textures and then we played with the oily vs water quality of materials (water paint over crayon). We talked a bit about Abstract Art vs Figurative Art.

Carnival Masks

Two classes in a row all we have done is carnival masks. Today i danced with the girls some rapso, calipso and other carnival music i brought with me. Nicauri won the amazing prize of a whistle for the best masks.
