Connect and create with families across British Columbia this Family Day!

Op Art, or optical art, is a form of abstract art in which artists use lines, shapes and colours to create optical illusions, playing tricks on our eyes.

Taking inspiration from artist Takao Tanabe’s series Cut Corners, now on view in the exhibition Op Art in Vancouver, we’ll explore the elements of Op Art and create our own eye-popping compositions!

  • Coloured paper
  • Markers
  • Rulers
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Objects that can be traced to create shapes, like circles

This event will be presented as a Zoom Meeting. Registration is limited. All ages welcome!
