Teacher: Miss Enos Date: 5/5/17


Subject: Art Grade Level: 8
Brief Summary of the Unit:
In this unit the students will be researching different op artists and teaching their classmates about them and their
artwork. They will learn how to create different optical illusions and will be creating their own unique composition by
combining two optical illusions. Throughout this unit, the teacher will be providing several demonstrations to show the
students all of the different types of optical illusions.
Stage One Desired Results
What do we want the students to learn?
Massachusetts Framework Standards:
1.7 Use the appropriate vocabulary related to the methods, materials, and
techniques students have learned and used in grades PreK8
1.7 Maintain the workspace, materials, and tools responsibly and safely
2.7 For color, use and be able to identify hues, values, intermediate shades, tints,
tones, complementary, analogous, and monochromatic colors
4.6 Demonstrate the ability to articulate criteria for artistic work, describe personal style,
assess and reflect on work orally and in writing, and to revise work based on criteria
developed in the classroom
Enduring Understandings:
Big Ideas: The students will be learning that an optical illusion is something that
deceives the eye by appearing to be other than it is. Op art, short for optical art, is a
style of visual art that uses optical illusions. Op art works are abstract and typically,
they give the viewer the impression of movement, hidden images, flashing and
vibrating patterns, or of swelling or warping.
Concepts:
- Op Art
- Optical Illusions
Essential Questions:
-How do the different op artists integrate math and art in their optical illusions?
-Why do we feel a certain way when we examine optical illusions?
-How do op artists manipulate space to create the illusion of movement?
-How did you manipulate space to create the illusion of movement in your optical illusion?

-An optical illusion is something that deceives the eye by appearing to be other than it is.
Critical Thinking Skills:
- The students will analyze pieces of art work made by several different op artists.
- The students will create several different optical illusions.
- The students will design and create their own optical illusions.
Stage Two Assessment Evidence
What will the students have to do in order to demonstrate their understanding
of the material?
Performance Tasks:
-The teacher will assess the students on their collaborative PowerPoints.
- The teacher will assess the students through performance tasks of practicing their optical
illusions.
- The teacher will assess the students through performance tasks of creating their own optical
illusions.

Action/Instructional Procedures

Procedures: For each procedure, list the teacher or student actions (with accommodations and modifications) as
well as the anticipated amount of time it will take to accomplish each task.

Anticipatory Set: (hook)


o The teacher will show a video to the students describing what Op Art is and its impact on the art
world.
The students will be split up into four groups and each group will be assigned a different op artist.
Each group will use computers to research their artist.
