Illusion & Abstraction

To accompany Illusion & Abstraction: Capturing the Landscape, we have produced a free children’s activity booklet which explores the different ways in which artists have both reflected and refracted the local landscape.

Click here to download the free activity booklet, aimed at children age 10 to 14, which examines perspective, the effects of light and shade and explores what it is that makes an abstraction.

With support from Solterra Landscape and Design. Education programming sponsored by AXIS.
