Third grade artists studied Andy Warhol and learned about "pop" (popular) art. We learned that printmaking is a fun and efficient way to quickly make copies of your artwork. We began by drawing one object that is popular and important in our lives. We made sure that any writing on our drawings was drawn backwards because our prints are mirror-images of our printing plates. We transferred our drawings to styrofoam printing plates and students made at least two different prints. We signed, numbered and titled our prints.
