It's time to get outside and use the beautiful textures of the earth to make your art! Students will assemble found natural objects into an arrangement emphasizing one or more elements of art and glue their pieces onto a painted plate.
Extension: Students photograph their finished artwork to manipulate on a photo-editing program then print and frame.
Even further: Sketch your finished assemblage paying attention to the values in each new texture.
