Now offering this NEW 6 week course in-person! Inspired by the exhibit "Illusions from the CMA Collection: Seeing is Deceiving." Learn about and see first hand how artists play magical tricks on our perception creating illusions that deceive the eye. Through creativity, students will create their own 2D illusion art utilizing a variety of drawing and painting materials. Some of the projects include drawing objects that look like they are popping off the page, optical art that looks like it moves, magic realism that combines the ordinary with the extraordinary, and more!

*Cost includes all supplies

*At this time, CMA no longer requires students and instructors to wear a face mask inside the building. (Mask policies subject to change based on CDC guidelines)
