Op Art

We looked at Bridget Riley’s op art paintings. The optical illusions that she made gave some of us sore eyes and heads! Here are our versions of op art.

Colour and shape

Colour and shape are really important elements of op art so we looked at some art by Victor Vasarely. We used simple shapes and hot and cold colours in a pattern to make this large art piece.

Communication and signals

Before radios were invented sailors had to create ways to communicate over long distances at sea. We discovered how they used flags to send messages on their ships and used hand held semaphore flags to send messages. When it was dark or cloudy they used blinking lights using morse code. Morse code was still used once radio was invented. We had fun creating our own messages using these different codes.

Famous Women

Once we discovered that it was women that painted the dazzle ships we wanted to see if we could find out about any other famous women in history and now. We first wrote about someone we admire and then we started to research about famous Scottish women.
