Pupils look at the works of the illusionist M.C. Escher. In addition to appreciating the mind-bending nature of his optical experiments, they also study his highly detailed drawing technique. They then complete an ‘Escher’ tonally matching missing areas from one of his famous drawings. Enjoy some incredible pencil work from Year 8…
