Week 13: Optical illusion 'Op' art
We used a rule to find the center of a page of paper. Then I had them draw radiating line outward from that center. Connecting the lines with spider-web-like lines. The most visually interesting onces alternated curving lines so that it almost looks like rippling cloth.
Then they colored every other area black like a warped checkerboard. The kids seemed to enjoy the meditative challenge! Even the younger kids did a good job.
