“Fidget spinners” became wildly popular because of their reputation as a concentration aid or a means of releasing stress and anxiety. Op Art (short for Optical Art) is a movement that rose to popularity in the 1960s as a means of keeping the eyes busy. In this class, participants will create their own handheld “fidget spinners” as kinetic art — discs, gears, and designs that rotate around a center axis. When patterns and colors on multiple layers spin together, they can fool the eye and create colorful illusions. Take one for a spin!
