Pattern and Texture
What is Op Art? Where do we find patterns and texture in everyday life? What is an engraving? You'll find the answers to these questions and more as you read 'How Artists Use: Pattern and Texture.' Learn how artists from the beginning of time to the present day have used patterns and textures in their work. The books in the 'How Artists Use' series explore the characteristics of color, pattern and texture, line and tone, shape and perspective. Take a close-up look at these characteristics in works of art by well-known artists. Activities in each book help you use these characteristics in your own work.
