Op Art: Spheres and Vortex Drawing

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Once again, my Middle School Art Teachers Facebook Group came through with this fun lesson, posted by fellow member Susan Becker Jones. Optical and Illusion-based art is always popular with middle schoolers, and this requires only the simplest of materials: It could be done with just a pencil, but markers and colored pencils also provided fun options. We used Susan’s instruction packet, and I also created two video tutorials to supplement her written directions. This has been a hit with my remote learners!
