Materials:

  • Color copies of famous works of art. (at least two per child.)
  • Magazines. (safe pictures cut from)
  • Glue Sticks.

Description of Program:

Did this program as part of my Little Artists class that is held once a month. Told them about pop art, showing examples from books we had on general art and Warhol as well as what mixed media was. Had them identify/guess artists and work title the famous works I had printed out. Each child picked two they would like to work with, and used their imaginations to reimagine the original work.

Instructions:

Have fun and be creative!

Cost:

Reem of paper, color copies/ printer ink, and discarded/recycled magazines.

Miscellaneous:

Pretty simple program, and kids always seem to love it, often request it.

Great project for volunteers, to go through discarded/recycled magazines, since most adult magazine may have something not intended for a child, it's great to have your volunteers go through the magazines and cut out miscellaneous items.
