This was my first year doing this project but it will not be my last.
My seventh and eighth graders really enjoyed this lesson. I introduced the class to artists like Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, and a few other Pop Artist. We examined their work and discussed the types of subject matters they used in their paintings. Since, we were focusing on quite a few Pop Artist I decided to use Super Heroes as our theme (I figured this was something that most of my students could relate to). I printed out a few super hero pictures for inspiration. We created a few simple sketches for warm-up and then made our final copies on 12X18 white paper. We used tempera paint for color. Students could use the style of any of the artist that we discussed in class. Below are a few of my student examples.
