I guess it is time for me to start thinking about and doing school work again after a wonderful summer. Students come back to us on the 30th. I have been having a hard time figuring out a bulletin board using our school theme, Discover the Magic of Learning. I did not want a rabbit jumping out of a hat or anything. A lightbulb finally went off in my head to use Optical Illusions. So I have decided to put several examples of optical illusions in art such as the old lady/yound girl, and the eskimo/eskimo face examples on the board with the theme changed for art to Discover the Magic of Art.

I have found several examples if any of you are interested.

Here are some lessons that I found:

Do any of you have any magical ideas to share? Any great Op Art ideas? We will be studying Riley and Varsarely and creating our own Op Art image.
