Optical Illusions: How to Create

( 24:14 )

Optical illusions play tricks with the eye. They are abstract art based on mathematics. Artist and educator Peggy Flores will show students how to make them by demonstrating “moving lines,” shapes that “pop out,” color variations, and interlocking designs. Line, shape, space, and color are discussed and demonstrated with different media as elements of optical illusions.
