Explore texture, pattern, and composition by creating drawings with objects at home. This relatively simple technique combines elements of drawing and printmaking.
To get started, you will need:
- Found objects with a hard surface that is rough or bumpy to touch such as leaves, mesh, a woven basket, or textured fruit rind
- Thin paper, like white copy paper
- Crayons, colored pencils, pastels, chalk, pencils, etc.
Place your paper over your chosen object’s surface and rub with your drawing implement.
Keep adding more textures, thinking about composition and colors. You can layer the textures on top of each other, which gives depth to your drawing.
You can leave your drawing as it is or use it as the background for another artwork.
Remember to share your creations with us and each other by tagging @maamboston or #MAAMDrawingTogether.
We will post our Drawing Together prompts every Thursday.
