The Eyes Have It!
Klopak, Ken
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v107 n8 p40-41 Apr 2008
The seventh- and eight-grade students in the author's art program sharpened up their eyesight and their use of color charts in preparation for an op art project. Op art is short for "optical patterns and designs." The goal of the project is to create and organize line and color into shapes, patterns, and design in symmetrical and asymmetrical configurations that affect eye perception. Information about symmetry, color relationships, positive and negative space, and repetitive designs was presented and discussed before any hands-on work was started. Samples by artists such as Victor Vasarely, M. C. Escher, and Bridget Riley were shown and discussed. After the information, samples, and materials were presented, questions and comments were discussed. (Contains 1 online resource.)
