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!
