2nd Grade Warhol Printmaking

Pop Art Hand Printing

Students in 2nd grade learned about the famous Pop Artist Andy Warhol.  Warhol was famous for his bright colored paintings and prints of the same object over and over.  2nd graders used their hands as inspiration for this project.  First they traced their hands and then used bright colors to carefully paint them.  Next the students learned about the art form of printmaking and used their fingers to do finger prints and their hands to do hand prints. By repeating their hand in their work they created works of art in the style of Andy Warhol.
