The Art Pod program invites youth with special needs, and an interest in fine arts, to explore art mediums through self-expression. The program creates an opportunity for participants to develop new artistic skills and take part in a positive recreational experience within an art gallery setting.
Requirements: Caretaker or respite worker is required to provide support during the Art Pod workshop. Participants should be able to follow one-step directions.
This week’s activity: Do you like optical illusions? Yeah, so do we! Participants will explore the process and creation of opt art using geometric shapes, lines, and curves to create optical illusions on heavy card stock paper. Participants will then chose either a monochromatic finish or an explosion of colour to their very own opt part creations.
