Art history is an incredibly important part of any art class. Create a well-balanced visual art class in elementary art, middle school art, or high school art by setting aside time every week to teach your students about art history, in this case, Pop Art History.
Put a fun spin on it by presenting it as a way for them to travel around the world and learn about other cultures. They can earn stamps for their journals, similar to an actual passport, by learning about artwork in different time periods and places. Artists Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and Claes Oldenberg are the primary focus of this project
This art history lesson focuses on pop art. As a class, artwork and artists are introduced and discussed before students work individually on researching pop art and answering questions individually. Younger student adaptions focus on class discussions. Artist worksheet activities are included, adapted for elementary art, middle school art, and high school art classes.
For younger students coloring book activities are included.
