4th Grade - Op Art

I like this project for a variety of reasons, but it's one of the only mostly-technical projects I do in my classroom for a reason.  Teaching skills is a valuable part of the art experience through each grade, but I like to add a little more abstract thinking into each lesson.  The next time you see this project, it may be in a very different form.  Stay tuned.

This project focuses on using curved lines and value to create a sense of space.  We follow a specific process to make the lines, then open it up to more student choice with how and where they add color.  Take a look at some stellar examples.
