4th grade Printmaking

4th grade artists learned about "Pop" artists like Andy Warhol and Romero Britto. We talked about Pop Art being a reflection of what is popular at the time. We talked about how what is considered popular changes over time. We looked at Pop art images from the 60's and learned about what was popular then based on what we saw in their artwork. We saw stars like Marilyn Monroe, Liz Taylor and the Beetles. We then drew something that was popular and important now and created styrofoam printing plates. We then made four different prints, making sure we had contrast between our ink color and paper color.
