Year 5 1960’s Day – Lichtenstein Art!

To create an image using the style of Lichtenstein.

The children were challenged today to create Pop Art in the style of Roy Lichtenstein! They researched the artist in Art and Design at the beginning of the half term, and were excited to create their own version of one of his pieces. We chose the medium of plastic bubble wrap, as it was ideal to create the evenly spaced dots in the background. Take a look at our gallery below!

  1. 1. Roy Lichtenstein used a technique of dot’s and Andy Warhol used photographic silkscreen printing to recreate his celebrities portraits.
    2. The tricky thing was to use the bubble wrap because when you press to hard then the paint will go all over the paper. I could produce my work differently by not using the bubble wrap and get a paint brush and do dot’s.
    3. I think our work reflected with Roy Lichtenstein because we used a range of dot’s and most of his artwork is based on dot’s.

  2. 1)In a conversation about pop artists Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol, it’s hard to look away from the fact that while Lichtenstein de- and re-constructed popular or mass culture into emotive and iconic ‘high’ artworks literally one Ben-Day dot at a time, Warhol de- and re-constructed popular culture itself.
