Students will work within the space of a small box to create the illusion of depth, beauty and mystery. Learn quick techniques for wiring an art project, create an optical illusion with mirrors and give new life to natural materials. The finished product can be nestled among books on a bookshelf to simulate an enticing secret world. If you have sticks and twigs from their yard, bring those along. All other supplies will be provided.
