Pop Art Prints - (5th)
5th graders learned about artist Andy Warhol and Pop art. Using the grid method to help enlarge popular cartoon characters on drawing paper, the students then transferred their drawings to 6 x 9 styrofoam sheets.
We printed the cartoons during one art period. Each student was able to pull several good prints. The best print was later glued to a larger paper frame and turned in for a grade. The second best print was framed as well but turned in to be sold at the Art Auction. The rest of their prints were taken home.
