Pop Art Raised Relief Prints

My second graders study Pop Art and Raised Relief Prints this year.

I based the background off of this lesson.
We use pop bottle caps to create the Pop Art background. We talk about how the artists from that art period used everyday objects as the subject of their artwork. So we are going to use every day objects like pop bottle caps to make our artwork. Plus we utilize bright, bold colors, just like they did.
We chat about raised relief prints.

We use Valentine's day as our inspiration and create a raised relief print that reflects that holiday.
Once both those are dry, we print!
