Weekly Challenge, 20th November – Surface Rubbings
.
We use and encounter different materials every day, each with their own colours, textures and creative potential. This week, the team at HICA is challenging you to create:
.
Create your own surface rubbing using materials from around your environment. Place a piece of paper over your chosen material and rub the paper with pencils, charcoal, crayon or ink to see what images you can create.
.
If you have more time …
Swap materials with a friend and see how your images compare. Can they guess which material you placed under the paper?
.
Think
Does your surface rubbing look like the material that you used? How did it feel to create something using materials from your environment?
.
Share
We would love to see your surface rubbings so do share them! Post a photograph of your image and the material that you used on social media using #ChallengeHull & #64MillionArtists. Don’t forget to tag Hull2017 on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and HICA on Twitter.
