I first came across these brightly colored handprints on Instagram. @summitartists posted her results and they were just so eye-catching, I had to try them!
My first graders loved the little video I found on YouTube about Andy Warhol and Pop Art. Click here to see!
We also used the neon tempera paints and I turned on our black lights while they painted the back ground. They were completely amazed.
The day we added the black handprints, I had a hand painting and printing table set up for four people. They took turns at that table and when they finished, they had some Lego centers, plus plus blocks centers, and a pop art color sheet option. Everyone remained engaged and worked cooperatively. I was super impressed to say the least.
This is just a quick little Valentine project that also teaches a bit about Andy Warhol. I did this with first grade but I think it works well with any k-2 class. They really enjoyed his colorful artwork and had a great conversation about that soup picture. 😉
I am pretty excited about doing this lesson with the kids because they have already seen my example and were excited about it. When they are excited, I am excited! : )
I made the printing blocks ahead of time and they will just be getting to print with them. With limited supply, budget, and time, I decided it would be best to go ahead and do this step myself. We will be discussing the Pop Art movement and focusing on Jim Dine and Andy Warhol in particular. This is my example but I will be sure and add pictures of their finished products when complete!
Another bulletin board from my other school!
6th graders studied Andy Warhol and his Marilyn Monroe images before creating their own, updated versions using Photobooth and Pages. We printed in black and white, then colored them with color pencils.
