Andy Warhol – miniature accordion-style books

10 Dec


Lesson focus: outline and accent color

We looked at the early work of Andy Warhol and discussed images that remind each of us of the winter holiday that our own family celebrates.

Before Andy Warhol began silk-screening soup cans, he produced thousands of whimsical line illustrations on various subjects. We looked at a small-format book published with several of these holiday-inspired drawings by Warhol.

Next, we worked on creating our own miniature (3.5″ x 3.5″) accordion-style books. Each child used a black pen to draw the outline of one image on each of the four panels of the book. After that, we learned about brush skills and chose one color from our water color paint set to accent certain elements of our artwork.
