Roy Lichtenstein Self-Portraits (Part 1)

Grades 2-5 studied the same color theory as Kindergarten and 1st, but being older, their lesson was extended to learn about other artists. Namely, Roy Lichtenstein.  We watched a video about his art, and then we made some art!

We have a campus wide effort to improve the positivity among children, to make them aware of their words and the effect that their actions and words have on others. Being a “bucket filler” means you are being positive and you are making another person feel good and simultaneously feeling better about yourself as well.

This theme was intergrated into grades 2-4’s self portraits, as well as primary colors and Ben-Day dots of Roy Lichtenstein.

They came out pretty cool!

Till next time!
