2nd grade took some time to learn about the King of Pop, Andy Warhol! Warhol was a pop artist who would oftentimes repeat an image over and over but change the colors for each repetition. He was influenced by things that were popular during his time such as celebrities, rockstars, and everyday objects. He is most well known for his prints of Marilyn Monroe and Campbell's soup cans.
After talking about his use of popular images, we talked about how the large statue of Bessie the Cow outside of Arby's was a well-recognized statue in the Janesville/Milton area. We used this as inspiration for our artwork.
This is a project that I typically do with 3rd grade except that we paint instead. This time I changed up the medium and gave it a shot with 2nd grade.
Students traced four cows onto their paper. After tracing their cows, students used markers and the complementary colors to color in their cows and backgrounds.
This project will later be turned into an Agamograph!
