Op Art Stars & Stripes Writing Pages & Assemblage




Create an eye-catching patriotic display that will sure to be a show-stopper.  This is a great lesson to do before the 4th of July, Veteran’s Day, President’s Day, Flag Day or anytime you want to show some patriotic spirit.

Use more color combinations (than red, white and blue) and you have a splendid lesson for any time of the year!

You students will have so much fun creating some vibrant Op Art Stars that they won’t notice how much they are learning!  They will be thrilled with their results, but behind the “pretty picture” they will also learn several art concepts.

Your students will:

  • Learn about Op Art and how implied contours are created.
  • Learn how warm and cool colors can create an illusion.
  • Make a collaborative op art star project.
  • And/OR
  • Write about the meaning of freedom, patriotism or why they love America.


  • Color Theory – warm  & cool, monochromatic
  • The Science of Op Art – implied contours
  • The Elements of Art – positive & negative shapes, color, line
  • Writing

This art lesson packet includes the presentations and handouts to help you from start to finish!  Just print and go!

The 7.5” squares can be taped together or assembled on a larger paper for a quilt-like group project.  There is also a writing activity in this set that has the star inside the square for students to draw on.  Then, instead of cutting it out, they complete the sentence “Freedom is…” at the bottom of the page.
