For the second semester of art we started with names. Students created an Op Art piece incorporating their name drawn in a radial design. Students could use solid colors or create patterns in their design. I also familiarized students with the work of Op Artists Bridget Riley and Victor Vasarely and reviewed what Elements of Art and Principles of Designs can be found in each example.
