The teacher presented various historical and contemporary optical art works, then had the students practice with their initials only. Students then drew grids, with pencils, on their art paper. Adding their name or nickname, in ‘bubble letters’ completed the drawing task. Next, two complementary colors were chosen to color the work. Students were tasked to think critically, making sure to alternate colors for each outlined section of their art.
To extend their finished works, students hang their papers in a tight grid on a presentation wall. The end result is a large and visually jarring optical art wall.
