Oh My! Op Art

Op Art

Last weeks lesson blew me away!  It had its pros and cons.  It was very difficult to teach, although a simple concept.  You wouldnt believe how many children did not know how to use a ruler.  Is it because of all the computers we use now and we dont need to measure anything, the computer does so much for us? 

The lesson was Op Art, which stands for Optical Illusion Art.  By teaching the children how to make a few simple lines, they could achieve something that looks like an optical illusion.  The results were amazing!  I was so happy to see it finally click with the students, thats what makes my job so well worth it!

Here are the results:
