Fall Pop Art a la Warhol

Fall Pop Art Lesson

Here was my second art lesson for Miss L's class. I personally like the accessibility of Pop Art...bright colors, repeated images...Fall and Andy Warhol should make a fun combination.

First I talked to the kids about Pop Art in general terms with some art examples. Then I narrowed it down and talked more specifically about Andy Warhol's particular style of pop art. Then I passed out some simple Fall shape ideas and the kids doodled their own designs on scratch paper.

It was still early in the school year so everybody had relatively fresh markers to use for a nice coloring job.
