Carver Magnet Elementary 5th Grade students partnered with the Innovation Hub to paint a 3D crosswalk in front of their school. For several weeks, students have worked on their designs. Artists from the Innovation Hub held a workshop at Carver. The main motive of the workshop was to teach about perspective, vanishing points, optical illusions, and design.
Then one Saturday, students along with the artists from the Innovation Hub painted two 3D crosswalks in front of the school. They hope this project will help prevent accidents due to the optical illusion of a raised crosswalk. As you can see in the image, the painted lines appear to be three-dimensional blocks. This can trick cars into slowing down.
