Worm Op Art


Op art is art that looks like it has movement or plays tricks on the eye. This project looks like moving worms.

There are many tutorials for similar projects. The one in the above video has a clear explanation and points out some common mistakes. (which we definitely made).

Basically a permanent marker is used to draw a curvy line across the paper and then additional curvy bubbles are added to both sides of the main line until the stack runs off the paper.

Most of the tutorials recommend coloring in alternating contrasting colors which adds to the illusion of movement. My daughter chose to color them like this as she didn't want to spend the time coloring with alternating stripes. I really like the way her op art project turned out.

  1. Love this one too! I've always been intrigued when I've seen these on Pinterest. My daughter made the hand one at her homeschool group recently - it turned out really well. Your girls' pictures are lovely.
