Anaglyph Art inspired by Contemporary Hologram Art
April 29, 2-4 pm

Students will view examples of contemporary hologram art, and discuss the differences between this form of art and a painting. Following an anaglyph demonstration, they will design their own image and outline it in black marker on one sheet of paper, and trace the image twice (staggered) in blue and red on their final sheet of paper. They will then attach pieces of blue and red cellophane to the lenses of prepared paper goggles, in order to view their 3D image.
