3rd Grade Roy Lichtenstein

3rd graders are studying the life and work of the artist Roy Lichtenstein. They learned that he copied other people's art by using comic strip and cartoon images as well as popular things in his own artwork. They learned that some people at the time considered him to be the worst artist in the world because of this! He would blow each image up on a huge scale and would use Benday Dots in his comic strip type work. Most of the Benday dots were primary colors.   We drew our own portraits and colored them with primary colored Benday dots and used them with a popular phrase in our school: "Fill a bucket!" (This is a phrase that reminds us to fill other people's buckets by being kind with our actions and words).
