What is a Agamograph?

An Agamograph is a captivating art form that plays a mesmerizing trick on your eyes, unveiling two distinct pictures within the same masterpiece, depending on how you look at it!


Here's the enchanting process: Start with a blank canvas and draw two different images, perhaps a radiant sun and a rain-laden cloud. The next step involves folding the canvas in a zigzag fashion, similar to crafting a fan or accordion. When viewed from one angle, the sun emerges, and with a slight tilt, the rainy cloud takes center stage. It's like unlocking a magical transformation right before your eyes!


Agamographs possess an undeniable allure as they breathe life into your artwork. The sheer magic lies in witnessing your creation effortlessly shift before your eyes. The next time you yearn to craft something extraordinary, capable of undergoing a fantastic metamorphosis, delve into the captivating world of Agamographs.

Example of how to print Easter Agamograph Template.

Step 1: Download and Print the Easter Agamograph Template

To begin your Agamograph art project you need to download and print our Agamograph template. Directions to download your FREE copy is found at the bottom of the post.


I recommend printing the Agamograph Template on 8.5x11 white cardstock paper. Although cardstock paper is superior, you can use regular paper if you are unable to find cardstock.

Step 2: Color Your Template:

Once you've printed the template, it's time to unleash your creativity! Use markers or colored pencils to bring the bunny and Easter egg to life with pastel colors. You're the artist, so let your imagination run wild!


The two images are broken up into segments and are laid out every other one from the two images. To help you keep it straight, on the template I have labeled them Picture A and Picture B. This way you can know which picture you are coloring.


Struggling with coloring these two images? We understand that the disconnected lines can make it challenging. If you're finding it tough, scroll down to the bottom of the post to discover a helpful hack that simplifies the coloring process. While it might involve a few extra steps, especially beneficial for our younger artists, it's well worth the effort.

Step 3: Score Along the Dotted Lines

It is important that your lines are precise. Younger kids may need help from an adult with this step. To achieve precise folds you need to score the lines on the agamograph before begin to fold. I used a toothpick and a ruler.


How To Score Lines

  1. Place Your Ruler: Lay your ruler along the line where you want to create the score. Make sure it's positioned precisely where you want the fold to be.

  2. Line up the Toothpick: Take your toothpick and place it along the ruler's edge, exactly on the line you want to score. It should be parallel to the ruler.

  3. Apply Light Pressure: Press down gently with the toothpick while keeping it aligned with the ruler. The goal here is to make a shallow indentation or crease along the line, rather than cutting through the paper.

  4. Repeat if Necessary: Depending on the thickness of your paper or cardstock, you may need to go over the same line a few times with the toothpick to ensure a clean score. Apply a bit more pressure if needed, but be careful not to tear the paper.


Once you've scored the line, remove the ruler and toothpick. You should see a faint crease where you scored.

Step 4: Cut Out The Template:

Carefully cut out Agamograph along the solid lines provided on the template. Be sure to follow the outlines precisely to ensure your Agamograph works its magic when we fold it.

Step 5: Fold Along the Dotted Lines

This is where the real enchantment begins. Fold your Agamograph along the dotted lines, creating an accordion-style pleat. The folds should be parallel to each other and about an inch apart. Take your time with this step, as precision is key for the Agamograph effect.


What your completed project should look like.

Step 6: Showcase Your Creation

With your Agamograph assembled, it's time to unveil the magic. Hold your artwork at one end and gently begin to bend it back and forth along the folds. Watch as the bunny transforms into an Easter egg, and the Easter egg back into the bunny with each twist! It's an Easter illusion that will leave everyone enchanted.


Struggling with coloring these two images?  As mentioned earlier, here's a special trick to simplify things, especially for younger kids. Before you start coloring, carefully cut along the dotted lines and assemble the two images separately. Color them in, and then glue them to another sheet of paper in the same order as they came. Afterward, proceed with the folding step. This method allows you to view the completed coloring page as a whole.
