POP Art POPsicles!

My Kindergartners are learning about different genres and styles of art and they recently made these absolutely ADORABLE Pop Art POPsicles! We used a 12x18 sheet of white paper, folded into fourths for the background. Tempera paints were used to paint each section a different color.

Students then used painted papers* to create their POPsicles. For some classes we used real popsicle sticks for the sticks and for some classes we just made them out of strips of paper. Each looked great.

*Sometimes I have students create painted papers for future use when they have "free draw time" when a project is finished. At this time of the year I usually have a TON of unclaimed (no name) artwork waiting to be claimed. If it is not claimed I cut it up for use as painted paper. Sometimes I have students that move away before a project is finished--- and their work gets cut up, too. Rogue, I know...but it works for us!





A refreshing summer treat, and an adorable way to teach students about Andy Warhol!

  3. Right now, I am so happy to find your blog from your entry on prekandksharing. I am so not an art teacher but our Kindergarten unit for the end of the year that we are writing is How We Express Ourselves specifically how art and artists make use feel and the different types of mediums, genres and forms. Thank you for sharing.

  5. I really like this idea. It is great to teach them different approaches to art. They probably love it because it is like making their own ice cream.
