Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
I want students to have a little bit of fun with art history. These three paintings are so famous that they are now part of the "pop art" genre.  Other people make parodies of them, so why shouldn't we?  In addition, I want students to have some practice with drawing skills and using a variety of materials.
I am a certified K-12 Visual Arts teacher.
Be sure you have completed your piece up to where we left off before the next class!
