Roy Lichtenstein – Kids Get Arty

Pop Art Art for Preschoolers

Preschool Pop Art

J is very into dots at the moment and when I noticed it was time for Kids Get Arty over on Red Ted Art again this month I instantly thought of the Roy Lichtenstein comic book type pop art art work that he produced. Pop Art art and particular the work of Roy Lichtenstein is a great activity for preschoolers and gave us a great opportunity to talk about techniques as well as look at book and Internet resources.

We started off looking at a Pop Art Art Book that we got from the library which had lots of the comic book style pictures in which J liked but he’s only just started to want to draw people. It did give us a great opportunity to talk about the dots in the pictures and how he made them – a little research on the Internet and I discovered that some were created with a stipple type brush.

Then we sat down with the laptop and Google’d Roy Lichtenstein and discovered The Lichtenstein Foundation website and looking at the Museum collections came across the sunrise pop art art work. J took to this instantly and so it was decided we were going to do Roy Lichtenstein inspired sunrise picture.

How you create our Pop Art Art Work inspired by Lichtenstein

I started off by drawing out with black pen a very rough sunrise on a piece of paper and handed over the dot markers to J to do with as he wanted.
