This episode is all about texture
– texture is the feel or shape of a surface or thing.
It’s the smoothness or roughness, or maybe how soft or
hard. We will learn about texture with a Paleolithic
cave painting, a fun pony corral, and a friendly but
prickly hedgehog. Learn how to add texture to your
drawings with ordinary things from around the house in
the Art Journal segment. Last, make a furry friend with
giant chenille stems.
