Photo Description:
We introduced the children to the style of op art and looked at one of the leading artists of this movement, Bridget Riley. We discussed the impact of her work as a group and how it made us feel, if we liked it or not and the reasons for and against. The students were tasked with creating individual zentangle designs inspired by our theme of op art. Aimee produced a really vibrant and interesting piece and was alone in her decision to use overlapping circles as her base design. She then detailed each section with a unique design creating an almost patchwork like quality. (Felt tip pens on gloss paper)
