This is the time of year when my 5th graders really need some challenges to help them stay on task in the art room – spring fever has really settled in for them! This Op Art project kept them busy and on task. We looked at Op Art by several artists, including Bridget Riley and Victor Vasarely – then created a small 9×9 Op Art drawing with markers. Next we did some Op-Art paper weaving (the kids loved this and really rocked at it!) to showcase their drawings. Totally awesome!
