Use this elementary school art activity in the classroom around Memorial Day or when learning about the military.
Use this agamograph coloring template around Memorial Day, or send it home with your students to do at home around Independence Day!
An agamograph is a series of images that change at different angles. It is named after the Israeli sculptor Yaacov Agam, who is known for his optical and kinetic art.
Even those this type of artwork is very technical and complicated, we have created a kid-friendly design that will result in a bulletin-board-worthy piece of art!
We have spliced together two images. All your students have to do is color each picture – making sure they match up the colors so that the image matches up and is complete when it is folded correctly (like a fan). Hang up the agamograph, and when you walk from one side to the other, you will see the creation change from one image to another!
