Year 6 Get Creative

November 19, 2015

In Term 1a Year 6E had the pleasure to go on a very nice trip to the MADE BY YOU workshop ( Before this visit we had been studying Optical Art or Op Art for short, discovering interesting facts about famous Op artists, including Bridget Riley and Victor Vasarely. Op Art is a mathematically themed form of abstract art. Abstract means it doesn’t have to look like something. The point of optical art is to confuse the eye. We used compasses, protractors, rulers and sharp pencils to draw on our ceramic tiles. Our final Op Art challenge was to paint our designs onto ceramic tiles at the Made By You workshop. Here are some photos with our beautiful work. We are all very proud of it.
