2013 Group Mural: Op Art
I decided this quarter that my early finishers would work on a group mural that I could hang in my clay room. I saw this idea on pinterest and adjusted it a bit. This mural required little organization on my part. I took 4 pieces of watercolor paper that were 36 in x 24 in and set them in a block of 4. I sketched the outline of an optical illusion in pencil. Then as students finished their art projects they were instructed to begin coloring in the sections to the mural with oil pastel. I gave them no rules and let them color any way they wanted. I love the final result and how bright and colorful it made my wall.
