First of all, a big hello to my new followers! Thanks to some much appreciated support from a fellow art blogger, I've gotten quite a few new followers in the past day.

Thanks to everyone for your continued support! Now onto my post... There's an optical illusion that's been all over the art blogs for a while now, which I believe originated here. I have always wanted to try it, but couldn't quite figure it out, even when looking various types of instructions. And here's her finished work: Artisan des arts: Optical illusion - Hands.

Using an idea I found here, I had the kids make optical illusions using only their hands, a pencil, and a Sharpie. Students were instructed to trace their hand, very faintly, in pencil. Then, they would draw horizontal lines across the paper, raising the line slightly when they crossed over the hand, creating an arc. Some kids started from the bottom, others went from the middle.

I personally think the middle gives better results - I'm not entirely sure why, but it just seems to. We noticed that the more lines you put, the more obvious the illusion becomes. A few students even acted as test subjects, and tried in different colors. The one above looks like the hand is floating away in the wind. Artisan des arts: Optical Illusions - grade 5/6.

It involved a solid hour of instruction, which I did step by step to make sure that they understood. Artisan des arts: Optical Illusions - grade 5/6. Artisan des arts: Optical Illusions - grade 5.
