Welcome to Mr. Herzog's Fourth Grade Online Lessons:
Creating OP ART:
Op Art: a form of abstract art that gives the illusion of movement by the precise use of pattern and color, or in which conflicting patterns emerge and overlap. Bridget Riley and Victor Vasarely are its most famous artists.
Before we start let's watch a couple of videos about drawing simple op art. You do not have to watch all of these videos, you may pick and choose what you would like to check out:
Op Art-Pattern on a Sphere:
Op Art: Geometric Square Design:
Draw 3D Tunnel:
Op Art-:Worm Tunnel:
Op Art Cone:
Op Art Cone2:
Op Art Rippling Rays:
Please read through instructions before you begin:
- Use a 8 1/2" x 11" white piece of paper (any paper will do).
- Hold the paper horizontally.
- Fold the paper in half, if you would like to draw 2 op art designs.
- You may draw any of the op art designs found on these videos or you may create one of your own, you decide.
- Carefully follow the directions found in these videos.
- Draw with a pencil and ruler if you want straight lines.
- In drawing a grid lay the ruler on the paper and draw vertical using the width of the ruler.
- Next draw the lines horizontally using the width of the ruler.
- Draw your op art in the center of the paper.
- Draw your op art design large enough so that your hand can not cover it.
- Once you are done drawing your op art design, color it in completely.
- You may use any colors you would like, even black and white.
- You may color your op art in crayon, magic markers, water color, or color pencils (whatever supplies you have at home).
- I can't wait to see the cool Op Art designs you create!
Remember: once you are finished with your artwork take a picture of it and email it to email@example.com. Include the students name and teacher's name and grade. I will post it on Bells Online Art Gallery.
Here are a few examples of OP ART that you may choose to draw:
