Instructor: Mary Beth Sasso
In this fun project students will be inspired to draw two separate images with one in realistic format and one in abstract format. After completing the images students will cut, fold, glue and arrange them in a zigzagged folded form creating “mountains” and “valleys” like an accordion. Once all pieces are assembled the art will become “kinetic” which means moving art.
As the artwork moves, it is transformed into different views of the drawing. FUN!!!!
This work is named after the Israeli sculptor, Yaacov Agam (1928-present) known for his optical and kinetic art.
