Op Art -- 3rd grade
First, we looked at the art of Bridget Riley and the Op art movement. We read a Scholastic Art issue which features this style of art. If you don't get these magazines, they are a great investment. Each year, we subscribe for a class set of this magazine. Then, I save them each year in an envelope labeled with the issue's title. After several years, you will have a collection of lots of subjects to choose from. Both of these Op art activities are discussed step by step on the Incredible Art Department. Although, it is interesting that the checkerboard design is actually an assignment I had while I was in junior high school and that is where i got the idea from.
