I really like to do different projects every year, but this has become so popular that the seventh graders ask for it every year. First we discuss what it means to be Pop Art. What images have withstood the test of time and what images have not. Then we all practice together with cartoon characters. The kids all begin rather timidly, thinking the drawing will be difficult. Once we break down the images into simple shapes, they are always amazed at how easy it is! I was surprised at how many angry birds I had this year!
