In the wonderful world of optical illusions, lines create the look of 3-D. Create bold, bright, geometric banners in this exploration adapted from Crayola Dream-Makers®.
What you see is what you get. Or is it? When lines and shapes are involved, your eyes can be tricked into seeing things. Make a banner that demonstrates your ability to combine lines and shapes into the illusion of 3-D forms.
<STRONG>Outline your banner</STRONG>. Choose cotton or 50/50 cotton/polyester blend fabric for your banner. Cut a banner with Crayola Scissors. Cover your art area with paper. On the fabric, draw two large rectangles with borders all around them using Crayola Fabric Markers.
<STRONG> Draw 2-D shapes</STRONG>. In the top rectangle, draw lines and two-dimensional shapes, such as squares and triangles.
<STRONG>Create 3-D illusions</STRONG>. Combine the 2-D shapes to create the illusion of 3-D forms (cubes or cones, for example) inside the bottom rectangle. Add a banner title and your name in the borders if you like. Highlight your motifs with Crayola Glitter Glue. Air-dry the banner.
<STRONG>Hang your banner</STRONG>. Roll construction paper into a cylinder. Attach it to the top of the banner with Crayola School Glue. Air-dry the glue. Thread ribbon through the cylinder to hang.
