Year 4 Op Art

I was really excited and nervous about doing this lesson as I feared that students would not understand the concept. I must say that students did an amazing job and put forth a lot of effort. We discussed what op art is and looked at some examples and then discussed what artists did to create op art. We learned that using lines, colour, contrast, and patterns are used create the illusion of movement and vibration.

Students had the choice to use fine liners, fat blacks, textas, pencil crayons and or metallic texts. I also gave students a planning sheet and they picked their best idea out of three.

I love how each student added in their own little flavour. Even the year 5s and 6s were amazed and wanted to get in on the action.
