Texture studies

Am looking forward to seeing all 30 of your texture studies on Tuesday as well as your self portrait projects. Be sure to bring materials to create 30 new textures--consider bringing a variety of different surface materials to work with as well as a variety of papers, from tissue to hard and slick, smooth and course. Bring a lot to work with, be prepared to experiment and explore.
