We studied the work of author illustrator Eric Carle. We loved his illustrations. They had a lot of texture and were very interesting to look at. We were inspired to try some texture art of our own. We used a bunch of different tools to apply paint to colored paper. We learned about different techniques to make different patterns and designs.
Then we looked in the books to find an animal that we liked and we tried to make one that was a little bit the same but a little bit different.
We hope you enjoy viewing our textured animal masterpieces.
