First grade texture monsters

First graders are learning about how artists use texture. Some artists use "implied texture" by making something look like it has texture.  Some artists use "actual texture" by adding items with texture to their art. We used both in our fun monster drawings!

Learning Goals:
I can create a fun monster using lines and shapes.
I can describe the differences between implied and actual texture.
I can create implied and actual texture in my monster. 


  1. I love your objectives for each grade level. I am teaching Art next year and my school currently does not have an art program. I am looking around to see the easiest way to teach multiple grade levels in a short amount of time. I came across your blog and love your approach.
