PopArt Heart

Image above by Mrs. Tabitha Seaton Morgan
Image above by Maisy, 4th grade
This project is based on the PopArt of  Burton Morris. He used normal design ideas from everyday life objects and made them into interesting Art Images. His subjects range from popular cars, toys, food & more. 
Here is a picture of him with his art. 
These are my favorite paintings of his.....
 .This lesson idea stems from this art teacher blog...
This is a great YouTube video that explains PopArt to kids...

Mrs. Morgan - teacher

Maisy- 4th grade

Artist: Roy Lichtenstein

Sea Turtle

 (Above: Teacher and Kindergartener)


The sea will use a crayon or oil pastel resist method. Using only blues and whites, draw in ripples at the surface (farthest), bubbles in the middle and plant life at floor (closest). 
*Having layers of depth will give the ocean perspective. 
(Alternative oil pastels) 

Water paint the sea. Make sure not to over saturate your brush with paint or the crayon will not resist color. Use more water. 
(Above my crayon resist)
(Above owe oil pastel resist)
Let dry...

With light pencil, draw turtle onto paper...
Start with basic shapes. 
Take it a step further by adding stylized shapes and details...

Outline with black marker to emphasize defining shape, important lines & details. 

Use markers and crayons to add details and color to turtle and shell. 
Cut out turtles...

Finishing up. 
Glue turtle onto your sea paper. You are done. 
I added a little emphasis with darker crayons in order to make the weak areas stronger. 

Hope you had fun!!
