Pop Art pictures: 2nd grade


Don’t think about making art, just get it done.  Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it.  While they are deciding, make even more art.” Andy Warhol

The 2nd graders learned about Andy Warhol.  We read Getting to Know Andy Warhol, by Mike Venezia and we viewed a short video about the artist. 

The students drew themselves while looking in a mirror.  Then, I photocopied each drawing so the students had multiple copies (copy a few extra in case a student doesn't like a result and wants to try again.)  They colored each picture in different colors.  Then, four pictures were mounted on to a piece of construction paper.

I really like the radiating yellow lines on this one.


Andy Warhol's Self Portrait

This student did an excellent job capturing all of the details in his self-portrait.

This boy spent a lot of time carefully coloring all these patterns!

And of course, I picked up a couple of the new Campbell's soup cans to show the students.
