Ocean Pollution Art Activity

PDF | 1 page|Grades: 3 - 6

An art activity to use for discussions about ocean pollution and environmental impact.

Did you know that June 8 is World Oceans Day?! According to their website, “World Ocean Day unites and rallies the world to protect and restore our blue planet!” Use this art activity to promote discussions about pollution!

An agamograph is a series of images that change at different angles. It is named after the Israeli sculptor Yaacov Agam, who is known for his optical and kinetic art.

Even those this type of artwork is very technical and complicated, we have created a kid-friendly design that will result in a bulletin-board-worthy piece of art!

We have spliced together two images. All your students have to do is color each picture – making sure they match up the colors so that the image matches up and is complete when it is folded correctly (like a fan). Hang up the agamograph, and when you walk from one side to the other, you will see the creation change from one image to another!
