Pop Art with Roy Litchenstein

All classes learned about the Pop Art era of the 1960’s featuring artists like Andy Warhol, Roy Litchenstein, Claes Oldenburg, and Keith Haring that was influenced by them.

4th grade focused on Roy Litchenstein and we made the lesson steer toward Language Arts by having them focus on onomatopoeia.

First they learned how to make block letters, and to draw them large!

Then they painted using only primary colors.

The last step turned into a science lesson as we discussed shadows and light waves for the 3D aspect of the letters.
