What You Need:
- 9″x12″ white paper, or something close
- Sharpie markers or black marker
- pencil, crayons or markers
*Start by drawing a curved line across the paper with a Sharpie marker. Think rolling hill… not roller coaster!
*Add 8 dots across the line.
They should be different lengths apart.
You need a dot close to the edge of your paper on both side.
*Start connecting the dots with bumps.
The lines from the dots close to the edge will go off the edge of the paper to an imaginary dot.
*The lines will eventually go off the top and bottom of the paper as well.
*Fill in the entire paper.
Pick a group of colors you feel work well together (2 or 3 colors).
Purple and orange, blue and yellow, green and red......
*Using pencil, crayons, or markers, fill in the spaces. Press harder in the corners to make it darker, to make it look like it is further away, in shadow. As you get near the top of each bump, press lighter and lighter, to make it look like it is closer and the light is touching it a bit, a highlight.
*Continue until the work is complete.
Crazy, right?? How are your eyes?
Below are links to two more Op-art videos that I mentioned above. You may also choose one of these to work on today.
Have fun, learn lots and see you next week !!
