In this class your child will gain an understanding of optical illusion art and create a bewildering piece. We will examine various types of Op Art from M.C. Escher to the more modern Gianni Sarcone and discover how to make these amazing works that trick the senses. The goal of the class is for students to create a mixed media painting in the span of 7 sessions to allow for thorough concentration on technique. Students will start exploring basic drawing techniques to create a sketch and then move on to painting with a focus on shading. The last step is to embellish with buttons to trick the mind!
