We’re excited to welcome M.J. Kocovski, an illustrator, educator, and graphic designer, to our IGTV today! M.J. is teaching us all about OP art, which is a modern art movement that creates an optical illusion to your eyes. Learn more about the principles of OP art below. And then download THIS printable to create your own OP art.
OP Art has five principles:
- It is not based on what you see
- It is very mathematical and planned
- It uses perspective or color contrasts
- Colors are not blended
- It embraces negative space
Head to our Instagram to watch an art lesson on OP art and learn how to make your own OP art piece. Share your creations on Instagram and tag #gomakestuff. And make sure to keep checking our feed because we’re sharing easy-to-follow art projects, special guests, and more.
