Art Enrichment

Fourth and fifth grade students learned about Optical Illusions during Art Enrichment time this week!
Optical illusions are images that trick the eye. The artists Bridget Riley and Victor Vasarely are great examples of Op Artists (artists who create art with optical illusions)! Students examined a variety of optical illusions, then drew their own!

Checking out an illusion! It looks like it's moving!
