Roy Lichtenstein Pop Art
The fourth graders have been studying the Pop art movement in art class. They learned that Pop Art was a movement during the 1950's where the subject matter was people or things from popular mass culture. They viewed slides of Roy Lichtenstein's paintings where he zoomed in on comic strips and used onomotopoeias, words that describe sounds. The artist was most known for thick outlines, bold flat colors, and his use of Benday dots to represent certain colors. The fourth graders then immidated his style by drawing their own zoomed in comic strip. They used markers to color in and printed dots in the background using tempera paint!
