Tactile Texture Art Cards

These textural art projects are inspired by Van Gogh’s famous “Starry Night” painting, Eric Carle‘s collage papers and Cy Twombly‘s layering of thick paint and materials. This digital download is delivered as a PDF, tailored for ages 6+.



The story of Tactile Texture

Ever wanted to touch a work of art that you thought you were only supposed to look at? It happens to us all. Because the texture of a work, the tactile quality of its surface, appeals to our sense of touch and can evoke feelings of pleasure, discomfort or familiarity. The texture they create is not always real. A real rock, for example, might feel rough or smooth, and it definitely feels hard when touched or picked up. A painter depicting a rock can create the illusion of these qualities through the use of elements such as colour, line and shape.
