Using TEXTURE in Your Art Portfolio

In this video we talked about texture, and we’ve included some examples of accepted student art portfolio pieces where they successfully used texture. 

In the visual arts, there are two different types of texture. Implied texture and tactile texture. 

Implied texture is when we use drawing or painting to show the way the surface of something “looks” like it feels. 

Implied texture is created using line, mark making, shape, and shading. 

Tactile texture or physical texture is the way a surface actually feels, created through methods such as the cutting, building, tearing or layering of materials
