Here’s a combination of some Op-Art projects done in the past!

(What’s Op-Art? Op-Art “gives the illusion of movement by the precise use of pattern and color”.

SPHERES AND CONES! 

Draw 3 or 4 circles on an 8.5 x 11 piece of white card stock paper (on my desk).
I also have circle templates that you can borrow.
Here’s a hint: Don’t copy my color choices!!

op1

Using a ruler, add a straight line up and down and a straight line across, meeting in the center of the circle.

op2

Make two curved lines on either side of each line, evenly spaced (See image below).

op3

Color the spaces on the grid in a checkerboard style.

Use Colored Pencils to fill them in.

Complementary Colors (opposite) work best.

op4

Draw a small dot somewhere near the center of the page.

op5

Use a ruler, and draw about 16 straight lines beginning at the dot and going right off the edge of the paper.
Make sure when you get to the circles, you stop drawing and continue on the other side of them!
You must have an even number of lines for this to work.

op6

In every other “cone shape” draw outward facing curves.

op7

Now, this is the hard part, starting near the center, in the cones that are blank,
draw inward curves that touch the outward curves of the other cones.

As you get near the top, there may not be any lines to connect to.
Just draw them to the other side (See below).

Again, when you get to the spheres, skip over them and continue on the other side.

op8

Now, you are going to chose two complementary (opposite) colors, and fill in every other cone shape.

op12

OK, you’re almost done!
Do the same thing with the other cone shapes.
Try to match a darker color with a lighter color next to it.

op13

TIf you want it to look really clever, you can add some shadow to the spheres.
Make sure they are all shadowed in the same direction!

op14

That’s it! Your Op-Art Masterpiece!
