Summary:This website is sponsored by the Museum of Vision that has helped educate people of all ages about the eye, vision, and the history of eye care for 28 years
Description:The Museum of Vision has published on its website 3 curriculum guides which focus on the human eye, perspective and how the brain processes images like optical illusions and 3-D.

When you get to the site you'll see the 3 guides that are in pdf files:

2) Art and Vision - Describes how artists create the illusion of 3-dimensions by exploring the basic concepts of vision, size scaling, overlapping, atmospheric perspective and linear perspective.

3) Animal Eyes - The animal kingdom is full of amazing eyes. Discover eyes that look like yours, and eyes that are wildly different. Join scientists on their exciting quest to understand how animals actually see.

Click on any one and the pdf file opens to reveal a well-formatted education guide with interesting text and colorful photos and illustrations. You can review it online or print it out to use offline. Every guide provides interesting discussion points and fun interactive activities.
