Essential Question: What makes a piece of art Pop Art?
This is an interdisciplinary lesson that is done in conjunction of Wellness/Health lessons on healthy eating habits. Introduce students to Pop Art and the work of Pop artists through a power point presentation. Using contour line students will draw six different foods from one of the five food groups. When drawings are complete, they will choose one of the foods to use in their final project. They will then re-draw the food onto a 6 inch square of white drawing paper. The drawing will then be outlined in fine line black marker. Various medium will be made available for students to choose to use to color their drawings, i.e., oil pastels, water color, block tempera, crayon, colored pencil, etc.
Remind students of the properties of pop art being represented by sharp edges and bold colors.
