Warhol's famous soup can Andy Warhol was considered to be the first superstar of American art – the “Prince of Pop”. He helped create a style of art called Pop Art by painting pictures of ordinary objects using bright colors and simple shapes. He was inspired to look at art in a new way, and got his ideas from pop culture and contemporary art. Much of Warhol’s work is done with a technique called silkscreen. He would reproduce an image mechanically, and then manipulate it by using repetition or by isolating it, using bright colors and simplifying the image to create a rhythm on the canvas. This became his signature.

    Kids are loving this project. I did a 2nd grade class last Friday and wanted to share that they were easily able to use the ruler and draw the bisecting lines so no need to use the preprinted ones for 2nd grade and above.
