“I work with nature, although in completely new terms.”
– Bridget Riley
Optical art is a style of visual art that makes use of optical illusions. The artist, Bridget Riley was our inspiration today. We had fun looking at her op art creations and seeing the movement and illusion contained within. Then it was our turn to create an optical illusion with lines and curves.
I love this time of year. To me – this is the real new year, back to school and straight into fall. The leaves are starting to change, the weather is getting chillier and the pumpkins are ready to pick.
At Art in Action we are very excited to introduce two new art programs to Humbercrest Public School this fall. For our grade 1 – 3 program we will be working on projects inspired by Picasso, Emily Carr, Georgia O’Keefe and many others. And for our grade 4 – 6 program we will introduce a zentangle landscape, gelatin printing and op-art inspired by Bridget Riley as well as many other projects. We can’t wait to get started on October 1st! Look for many updates to come…
