Cycle 3 Week 17- Roy Lichtenstein

This will probably be one of your students’ favorite projects this year! Roy Lichtenstein’s paintings, inspired by comic strips, are colorful and bold and kids can immediately connect with his style.

Lichtenstein’s paintings were large-scale, exaggerating the Ben-Day dot technique used to print colors at the time. We’ll use Q-tips and tempera paint to mimic the look, and also look at color schemes that work well with our pop art project.

Materials:

  • Cardstock, printed with templates
  • Color wheel
  • Pencils
  • Black markers or pens
  • Q-tips
  • Tempera paints
  • Paper plates
  • Paper towels, clean up items
  • Images of Roy Lichtensteins work

 

Here is the Cycle 3 Week 17- Roy Lichtensteinlesson plan, which includes the printable templates seen in the video.

    Thank you for these lessons. I’ve used the Wyeth and Lichtenstein lessons with my cc class. Do you have one coming for Davis? If not, do you have any tips for that week?
    Thank you!!
