Agamographs provide a fun unique way of viewing art.
This resource is a fun hands-on Christmas activity that combines two separate images into one are piece, which the viewer can then see – from different angles - each picture independently.
This activity involves coloring-in, cutting, gluing and folding. You will require; coloring-in materials (pencils, felts, etc), scissors, glue-sticks.
This resource has five Christmas images (present, bells, candy cane, reindeer and wreath) to put together and create the agamograph. This resource has all the combination pairs (10).
There are two levels of challenge;
- the final image is composed of 8 strips (4 strips for the hat and 4 strips for the ship), suitable for younger students
- the final image is composed of 16 strips (8 strips for the hat and 8 strips for the ship)
I have also included blank templates for students to create their own two images to combine.
This resource also has a short stopmotion video (the video preview) demonstrating the construction of the agamograph. Note: my making TES videos is still in its infancy and while the quality is not blockbuster material, it does show how the art is made.
