Summer Agamograph Art Activity

(0)
This is an excellent end of the year art activity to engage your students. Agamographs provide a unique way of viewing art. My students are fascinated and get so excited with this art idea. This resource is a hands-on Summer themed 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 7 Summer themed images (‘Summer’ and sun, Ice Cream Vendor, Beach Ball, Ice Cream and Watermelon, Shells and Starfish, Beach Scene, and Grasshopper) to put together and create the agamograph. This resource has all the combination pairs (21). There are two levels of challenge; the final image is composed of 8 strips (4 strips for one Summer image and 4 strips for the other), suitable for younger students the final image is composed of 16 strips (8 strips for one Summer image and 8 strips for the other) I have also included blank templates for students to create their own two images to combine.
