Seeing is believing

What do you see? 

Now look at this again…is the picture true in what it says?


How the mind perceives objects and colour combinations was a task we used in Breakfast Club, combining Science, Art and even History. Using an artist from 16th century Italy, who painted portraits in fruit and vegetables, to modern day street artists who create vast chalk canyons on the pavement, the girls were shown how all is not as it seems to the eye. Colour words like Red were written in Blue, Yellow in Green, and so on. This diagram was also used to show how one can look at a picture but not really see what is there. But the best trick is to write the word Teach, then hold it up to a mirror, and it says Learn. M…a…g…i..c!!!
