Ready to liven up a dull art history lesson? Why not try a roll a dice game? This art lesson to create a Roy Lichtenstein musical composition drawing is no exception. Going to be absent? Fill up your art sub plan folder with engaging, low-prep art projects that are easy to implement for substitute teachers. Teach your students about the clash of Abstract Expressionism with Pop Art in the 1950's, Benday dots, and silkscreen printing. Step-by-step picture directions and the included PowerPoint presentation with close-up, detailed photos will guide your students from start to finish.


Are you going to be absent and need a last minute art lesson for the substitute? In search of an activity for a remote learning or distance learning situation? Relieve the stress of being absent! This Roy Lichtenstein art project is structured in a way that students can do the reading and practice drawing in one lesson, and the actual project when you return the following week.

Planning on a maternity leave and looking for engaging, ready-to-go art projects that even an uncertified art sub could handle? No worries! This lesson includes everything from the activity to self-assessment resources that will keep students learning while you're out on leave.

Fill up your art sub plan folder with thorough art lessons that will motivate your students and not overwhelm your substitute. Leave copies of the game in a labeled folder inside the tub along with some dice. Once your students know how to play the game, they're easy to leave with a sub!


Are you trying to cultivate self-reliance in your art room? This Pop Art game makes for the best and most productive early finisher activity for your students.

Set up a choice-based art center where students select an activity amongst different ones. Print out the game board and directions back to back, put them in a labeled folders, and let them pick what they'd like to create. This is similar to a directed drawing activity in which students are guided through the art process.


If you're an art teacher looking for a differentiated art lesson that boosts independent thinking, problem-solving, and skill-acquisition, this will do the trick.

In art, there are four main ways to differentiate: by the outcome of the project, the task at hand, the supplemental resources given to students, and the amount of support offered to each student. Despite students selecting designs from the same Roy Lichtestein game board, the outcome of each project is unique to the creator.

I've included three ways students can generate their design. The first is the game board where students roll the die to select their parts. The second is a "you pick" board. Both of these are printables. And lastly, for teachers needing engaging lessons during distance learning, I've added digital spinner wheels!

You will create a Roy Lichtenstein musical composition by rolling the die and collecting the different parts required to create it.

  1. Create easy staff lines by taping five pencils together.
  2. Practice using this new tool before starting a final composition.
  3. Draw curved lines that lead off the page.
  4. Erase any parts where the staff overlaps itself.
  5. Roll the die to select the first pattern to draw in between the staff.
  6. Roll two more times to determine the last two patterns. Draw them between the staff.
  7. Then roll the die two more times to select music notes and symbols.
  8. Draw them on the staff, balacing them throughout the composition.
  9. Use black permanent marker to outline everything.
  10. Color your design with markers, crayons, or colored pencils.
