In this lesson, students will explore the use of texture in painting while reflecting on the significance of our impact as humans on the landscape through our production of waste materials. The collected objects collaged onto the canvas can be used in an illustrative way through their unique textures. To enhance this effect, color is added in the form of acrylic paint, and Chroma Molten Metals adds a luminosity to the finished piece.
