NACOGDOCHES, TEXAS - Optical illusions will be the focus of a children's art workshop to be offered by the Stephen F. Austin State University School of Art from 4 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 22, at The Cole Art Center @ The Old Opera House.
Participants in the class, which is open to first through eighth graders, will view "Rufus Butler Seder: LIFETILES," learning about Seder's optical glass-tiled murals popularly known as "movies for walls."
The students will then create their own optical illusions and artwork inspired by the exhibition, explained Dawn Stienecker, SFA lecturer of art education. She and SFA art education majors will teach the workshop.
Registration for each class is $5 and covers the cost of the materials and refreshments. Parents may pre-register by e-mailing Stienecker at firstname.lastname@example.org and providing the child's name and age.
The Cole Art Center is located at 329 E. Main St.
