Studio Tutorial videos.

Exercise 3.1 Op Art + Illustrator

This module we will be doing something different, and creating a single image based on multiple steps described in the studio tutorial videos. For this assignment, you will use Illustrator to create an image inspired by one of the Op Art paintings by Bridget Riley posted to this module. Your image doesn’t need to be an exact replica of your inspiration painting ­ you are just using this artwork as a starting point.

Your image will be completed over multiple steps ­ be sure to export at the end of the final step and submit to this assignment. This final exported image is worth 8 points total, broken down in the rubric below (which correspond to each of the different tutorial videos). Partially completed projects will be assigned partial credit based on this rubric.
