Turn a simple heart into pop art with pizzazz! Make several for unique greeting cards or a wall display.
Organize a variety of text and electronic resources focused on pop artists. Invite students to discover famous abstract or pop artists such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and Keith Haring. What did they do to ordinary things to give them a contemporary or abstract look? Sometimes the artists changed a shape or enlarged part of an object to make it look different or unique. Allow time for students to work individually or in small groups as they research these artists and their work.
Discuss findings with students. Ask them to attempt these techniques in designing a unique pop art card or poster. Create a heart card for Valentine’s Day or use any symbol you like for any holiday.
Students cover their work areas with recycled newspaper. Using Crayola Washable Paint, students cover one or two sheets of paper with red paint. Air-dry the paper.
Fold another piece of paper in half to make a card. To design the background, dab a wet sponge into Crayola Washable Watercolors. Lightly tap the sponge on the paper for a marbleized look. Air-dry the card.
Students use Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils or Color Sticks and their imaginations to draw a large contemporary-looking heart on the painted paper. Cut out the heart and strips for the card’s border with Crayola Scissors. Cut out the center of the heart. Attach the heart and border strips to the card with Crayola School Glue.
Cut out smaller contemporary-looking hearts from the painted paper or plain paper. Decorate them with Crayola Fine Tip Markers. Accentuate the hearts with Crayola Glitter Glue. Air-dry the hearts.
Glue hearts scattered around the card. Air-dry the glue.
Students compose a message on the outside and inside of their cards.
