We <3 Warhol!

Standard

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. 😉

Picasso Hearts

Standard

I came across this lesson on Deep Space Sparkle who gives credit to Painted Paper’s post about Picasso’s Rose Period Hearts. The lesson is pretty simple but the kids loved the freedom of painting any kind of line, shape, or pattern on their hearts. We took the time to fold our paper and cut our own hearts and they did beautifully. No broken hearts in this first grade class! 🙂 I shared with them the examples on DSS’s page and Painted Paper’s too. I’ll be posting pictures of their finished pieces next week! In the mean time, here is my example. Happy ❤ making!

Valentine Pop Art Printmaking

Standard

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!
