Today I am joining with the iHomeschool Network to share a Famous Birthday post. I decided to feature Andy Warhol. His birthday was August 6th 1928. We did a fun Andy Warhol Flag Art project. Andy Warhol is a fun modern artist to learn about and study with kids. His projects were all so vibrant and interesting!
Andy Warhol for Kids: Art Project
For our project I printed a few blank Great Britain flags. You could do this project with any image, I just love the Great Britain flag design! I printed out 4 per page and printed several pages so we could make a bunch of them. We used colored pencils and colored them all different colors. We used three colors for each flag.
Andy Warhol did much of his art through painting and screen printing. I know colored pencils is not after his style, but I let my kids choose their medium for this project. The main thing is that is is after his style of art!
Once they were all colored different colors, we cut them out and glued them onto a large piece of construction paper. Arrange them into any order you think looks good.
We did another pop art project a while back. See my post on Alphabet Pop Art.
Andy Warhol for Kids: Teaching Resources
The Warhol website has some great lesson plans you can use for free.
Scholastic has a lesson plan on Warhol.
Atlanta’s Museum of Art has a Warhol Lesson that is great, too!
Also, there are always lots of great books that kids enjoy to help them learn about different topics.
