KMS Art students worked on this art activity alongside the Pop Art linoleum block printing assignment. After exploring the artistic themes and subjects of the original Pop Artists of the 1950s and 1960s, students brainstormed a list of popular icons and products that would be good modern Pop Art subjects for their own generation. I chose a handful of images from their list to print and xerox, making enough gray-scale copies for every student to color.

Students used colored pencils to imitate the Pop Art style, emphasizing bold solid colors, sharp-edged lines, repetition and enlargement. Several middle school students (not in my classes) got wind of this activity and came in to ask for their own copy to color… evidence that our Pop Art themes were spot-on!

  1. Great artwork with kids! I’m impressed. I teach art to K – 8 (400) kids, but this work is really awesome!

  2. Do you have a copy of the Coca-Cola print out you used for pop out art?

  3. Hi Amy,
    No, I’m sorry that I don’t have the Coca-Cola printout anymore.
