Pop-out striped hands

This lesson was a good excuse to learn about the English artist Bridget Riley, whose paintings are also famous as optical illusions:

See what we mean about optical illusions? Cool huh? :)

The children used their own hands, together with two or three colours, including white of the paper to make their hands pop out. During this lesson we also learned that our fingers and hands are not flat like a paper, but are curvy, just like sausages and toilet paper rolls...we went up and down over the fingers, just the same a car does when it goes over a sleeping police.

This lesson also lent itself to drawing simplifying them into shapes and lines.
We also learned about the anatomy of the hand, including joints, knuckles and finger nails!
