Let’s Make Stuff with d’Arci: Op Art Extravaganza (Virtual)
Tue December 1, 2020 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm
Join local artist d’Arci Bruno to learn and create Optical Art! Optical art, or Op Art as it is better known, is an abstract style of art that creates the illusion of movement, hidden images, flashing and vibrating patterns, swelling or warping. Through the use of precision and mathematics, stark contrast, and abstract shapes, these sharp pieces of artwork have a three-dimensional quality that is not seen in other styles of art. Optical Illusions can use color, light and patterns to create images that can be deceptive or misleading to our brains. The information gathered by the eye is processed by the brain, creating a perception that in reality does not match the true image.
