 7th Graders learned about OP ART this past week and we studied the artwork of Vasarely, Bridget Riley and MC Escher.  We looked at art that made us say WHOA!!! Op art is based off of artwork that contains optical illusions. Op art creates movement through these optical illusions. Many times it contains artwork that is 2-D but made to look 3-D.  After watching our presentation ( ), we discussed different op art designs and students chose one that they wanted to create.  During this assignment, craftsmanship is very important because a wrong line, wrong color, or visible pencil lines can really disrupt the illusions. Great Job students!!
