Pop Art Name


We designed our names in 6-8th grade art 
in the PopArt Style of Roy Lichtenstein. 

Students were assigned to create their names in box or bubble letters. 
They used the Trace and Erase method I taught them. 

Then they had to use shapes or lines around their name to make it appear as though it is in action. 
It had to be "ing". 
Exploding, hopping, dripping, moving, zooming, booming.. somethING. 
We looked closely at the VAROOM painting by Roy Lichtenstein. 
We talked about how he made a circular burst around the word, then lines that go outward around the word and then even more shapes to look like flying debris. 

After designing, they were only allowed to use primary colors plus black and white. This is to mimic the printing abilities that were available in the 1960s when pop art was new.
