Make art that deceives the eye in honor of April Fools Day! Artists such as Liu Bolin, Neil Gall, and Célia Kogut have perfected the art technique of trompe l’oeil to ‘fool’ viewers into believing that a three-dimensional artwork actually exists on a flat plane. Children will draw inspiration from these artists such as as they play with illusion and perspective to create works that are not quite what they seem.
