Students used school research links, as well as the literature and bookmarked web pages to answer guiding questions about the legendary artist. Children composed paragraphs and were then asked to consider the images they would most likely choose if they were to create art consistent with the style of Andy Warhol’s famous Campbell’s Soup, Marilyn Monroe, and Mickey Mouse pieces. Many students chose to use pictures of themselves.
The students then imported their .jpegs into an innovative website created by Big Huge Labs featuring a tool called a Warholizer. The site took their pic and digitally transformed it into the “Andy Warhol style”. The students were proud to be able to emulate the famous artist and then reflected on their digital artwork. This project was a fun integration of technology and art.
