Check out these Robert Indiana inspired prints! This project came from Cassie Stephens and her fabulous blog! Read the details from last year here!
Robert Indiana is a contemporary American Pop Artist. Robert works with popular words in his work such as Love, Amor, and Hope. A lot of his art draws inspiration from what is happening in the world. For example, his “Hope” sculpture was made for Obama's presidency. He makes paintings of words too but is most well-known for his sculptures.
This was a project that I got from the lovely Cassie Stephens!
The first day was spent creating a pattern on a small sheet of paper and then transferring their pattern over to a piece of styrofoam.
The 2nd and 3rd days were a whirlwind of printing! Students colored on their styrofoam with markers and then printed them onto damp slips of paper. The first day was spent doing one-color prints. On the 2nd day, I showed them the beauty of rainbow prints!
The final day was spent gluing their four best prints down to a sheet of paper and then cutting out the letters to a 4 letter word of their choosing and gluing them down.
They turned out great and will look awesome on our Agamographs that we will be making!
This was just a quick project that we did right before winter break. On the first day, we folded our paper in half and used markers to draw a wintery scene on the top half. When they were finished coloring, I sprayed their papers with water and we folded them in half. This printed their marker coloring onto the bottom half of their paper so that it looked like a reflection.
On the second day, we drew things on a seperate sheet of paper that could go on our ice. Students drew things like skaters, hockey players, penguins, and one student even drew ice fisherman!
For the final day, we cut out the figures and glued them onto the background. Then we gently splatter painted white onto the picture to look like snow.
