PART 2: CREATING VISUAL TEXTURES
The competence of an artist is suggested not only by technical skills but also by the unique attributes that characterize his works. A significant style of form, color implementation, and modes of expression give clues to the artist's identity.
Encouraging students to continually create and express their ideas in new ways is a significant aspect of "doing" art. On this page there are 2 additional and different examples of students creating their own textures. In the first example below classes were asked to think of 3-dimensional objects and create a visual texture that would express it. The composite shows some of their ideas. Black and colored pencil drawing are shown. How about analyzing some of the everyday objects that surround you and create small blocks of line, shape and color textures of your own?
Sometimes, visual textures can be small icons of natural forms, or a mini-composition of lines and shapes that contrast each other. In these two groups you will see textures suggested by food, animals, medallions, geometry, games or weather and many that are just simple line designs.
Textures, like other Design Fundamentals are the tools used to manipulate ideas and give them graphic form. The larger the repertoire of tools, the better the choices for personal interpretation.
The illusionary arts to be graphically rendered, must have genuine expressions to communicate ideas. Texture offers the artist a powerful means of transmitting ideas. The mystery of art, its reality configured by imagination, is truly a remarkable thing.
