WHAT IS A RUBBING
Taking a rubbing of something is a way to capture its surface texture. Surface texture is the way things feel - ex. bumpy, smooth, rough, sandy. Each texture will make a different pattern. Seeing these patterns on paper gives us another way to understand an object, and what texture is. It might also inspire some creative ideas since pattern and texture is an important element of art!
SOME OBJECTS TO TRY!
Cement, tree bark, leaves from trees and plants (could be dried on the ground!), tiles, gutters, a bundle of twigs, stone, mesh, fabric, wood, telephone pole, letters on a fire hydrant.
