I created textured paint in advance. It is tempura paint in 3 values of yellow I value of green (for centers and stems) mixed with Flour and sand for texture.

Texture? What is it?
What does your hair feel like?
What does the bottom of your shoe feel like?
What do your pants feel like?
What does tree bark feel like?
Some things are rough like tree bark and the bottom of our shoes
Some things are soft like kittens and our hair
This is Texture.

Can we see texture?
Can you smell texture?

Look at Van Gogh’s sun Flowers
What do you think?
How do you think they would feel if we were allowed to touch them?
How would them look if we were in a gallery with them?

READ: Pat the Bunny and talk about different textures in the book.

Vincent van Gogh (30 March 1853 – 29 July 1890)
His work had a far-reaching influence on 20th century art
Known for his vivid colors and emotional impact.
He suffered from health issues
died largely unknown, at the age of 37,
sold only one painting while he was alive
