Tromp l'oeil April Fool's Day

Everyone in Mrs. Huffman's class today got glasses! Just kidding, it was an April Fool's joke. The 2nd graders all looked at photos of people's eyes to draw them onto a pair of glasses. This makes the students look very silly! They look real, but they just aren't themselves. I got this lesson from the blog, Art Projects for Kids.

The students learned a little about tricks that artists like to play on people. One of the styles they use is called tromp l'oeil. Below is a picture of a drawing that someone made on an actual side walk. The realistic drawing plays a trick on the viewer as it looks like the sidewalk is caving in because it is done so well!
