I’ve been a docent at the Nevada Museum of Art for a few years and one of the elements of art that I enjoy exploring with the children I tour is texture. I ask them to enter the painting and tell me how something would feel if they could touch it–soft, smooth, fluffy or hard, rough, coarse? Hot or cold? I think sometimes the sense of touch is overlooked when we are writing sensory detail.
For today’s prompt, write a poem or flash fiction in which you feature at least one description of something with texture. You may find it fun this week to become more aware of the input your sense of touch offers to you and how it makes you feel.
Please include a link to your response in the comment section of this post and enjoy your sense of touch. However, if you visit a museum…please don’t touch the art! :0)
