Op Art- Learning Colors!

During this lesson, Junior High Students studied op art but my main goal in this lesson was learning about colors. During this lesson we discussed complimentary, analogous, and monochromatic colors. First we used a pencil and ruler to draw the initial steps to the project. Next they were asked to choose two sets of colors, any complimentary, monochromatic, or analogous color. Before they began drawing with the colored pencils, I demonstrated how to shade darker on the edges and lighter in the middle (they used prior knowledge of the Chuck Close project for this assignment). When finished, students were asked to write down which colors they used on their artwork (ex, analogous and monochromatic).
