5th Grade Contour/Pop Art Drawings Inspired by: Escher and Warhol

My fifth grade students studied M.C. Escher's Hand Drawing Hand artwork.  They had to do a contour drawing of their hand holding a magnifying glass.  Then, they studied Andy Warhol.  We looked at his Campbell Soup Cans, Brillo Boxes, and Portraits of famous people.  We talked about Popular Culture and how you can use everyday objects or things from popular culture as the subject of your artwork.  The students chose their subject and created a contour drawing of it.  Finally, they combined the two drawings together to create their Pop Art.  They look amazing!
