The 4/5 spec. needs class has just started a sensory art unit that will explore art in conjunction with the five senses. This week and next week is focused on the sense of touch. Coloring on sandpaper is a very tactile experience; sometimes it feels sticky, sometimes scratchy. The magic part of the day is ironing the crayon-on-sandpaper onto fabric. The heat transfers the crayon image from the sandpaper to the fabric! If you look closely, you can see the sand granules in the photos below. Next week, our sense of touch will lead us to a squishy, soft art making experience.
