In this Drawing and Painting Studio ages 7-12 we all drew our first Optical Illusion. Using the optical illusion of Fish Island By Erik Johansson as our inspiration.
The only guideline to our drawings was that our image, like Eric Johansson's had to be two pieces that when seen separately look correct (above and below) but when the viewer sees the images together see's the illusion. Sticking with the underwater theme the Little Artists got started thinking about their optical designs-trickier than one might think!
Our optical designs were all drawn with ink, watercolor pencils and painted with watercolor paints.
Crab claws became rocky islands, fish fins became fishing boats, and sea weed became hair to an underwater scuba diver. All of our completed work was then framed in glass, ready to be hung for when we got home :)
See you at the Next Studio!
