5th grade artists learned about Op Art. They learned about how sometimes it is meant to be an optical illusion and sometimes it is just meant to confuse or jangle the eyes using pattern and lines! We also talked about how artists use materials in their environment, sometimes even junk to incorporate into their work. We used old CDs to create part of their art on. We tried to make the CD stand out from the background visually and actually by wadding up paper and glueing it under the CD to make it pop out.
I can describe and identify Op Art.
I can use a ruler to create my own Op Art.
I can make my CD stand out visually as well as actually.
