For this unit students learned about Pop Art along with a few artists of the movements time Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. Students received different pictures of food item containers where they had to replicate them, centered and of large scale on a thick piece of paper. Students focused on the shape of the jar and the labeling due to Pop Art's interest in popular culture. After outlining their drawings students used artists tape to create sections for the three complementary pairs of the color wheel.
