In the Art Room - Pop Art

This is a favorite for my seventh graders!  They are always surprised at how easy it is to draw the cartoon characters.  First we define Pop Art.  Then we look at what images have remained popular over a period of time and what images were only popular to a certain time.  Each kid chooses a cartoon character to paint for their final project.  They bring a print out of their character from home and spend several classes breaking down the shapes and sketching.



  1. Wowzers- you have some talented students!

  2. Thanks! They are constantly amazing me! But honestly, even my weakest students did a great job with this project. I've visited your blog and I see that you homeschool. If you ever need some specific art project ideas, please let me know!
