Forest Hill Elementary School

Op Art

Students at Forest Hill learn about French Hungarian artist known for his Op Art.

Our own art teacher, Doranne Hardt, introduced the work of Victor Vasarely to our kindergarten students. Victor Vasarely was a French-Hungarian artist credited as the grandfather and leader of the Op Art movement. Utilizing geometric shapes and colorful graphics, the artist created compelling illusions of spatial depth. Our students learned about him while experimenting with shapes and color to create their own Op Art.
