Op Art Alphabet Coloring Pages with Impossible Shapes




Quick and easy op art lesson that you can use to teach about impossible shapes, then make a banner or fill a bulletin board with colorful op art letter coloring pages.

Impossible shapes (also called impossible figures) happen when you make a 2D drawing of a 3D object using isometric forms with the features drawn inconsistently from how they appear in reality. Students will see some examples of impossible shapes in the presentation and how M. C. Esher used impossible shapes in 2 of his prints.

You can use the coloring pages in several ways.  

Create a banner by printing out each letter of a phrase, such as:

  • Happy Birthday
  • Welcome Back
  • Thank You
  • Have a Great Summer
  • Happy New Year


This set includes a handy printing guide with page numbers for each letter to tally how many of each letter to print quickly.

Use the bulletin board letters that are part of this set to make a bulletin board full of students’ initials or the alphabet letters.

Have students review color theory using a particular color scheme on the letters. Or have students fill the letters with patterns or zentagles.
