or anytime you want to show some patriotic spirit.
You students will have so much fun creating some vibrant Op Art Stars that they won’t notice how much they are learning! They will be thrilled with their results, but behind the “pretty picture” they will also learn several art concepts.

✪ Learn how warm and cool colors can create an illusion.
✪ Make a class assemblage op art star project.
✪ Write about the meaning of freedom, patriotism or why they love America.
✪ Color Theory - warm & cool, monochromatic
✪ The Science of Op Art - implied contours
✪ The Elements of Art - positive & negative shapes, color, line

The 6.5” squares can be taped together or assembled on a larger paper for a quilt-like group project. There is also a writing page in this set that has the star inside the square for students to draw on. Then, instead of cutting it out, they complete the sentence, “Freedom is …", Patriotism is ... "or "I love America because ....” at the bottom of the page.
