BASA Art Class Week 9
Following the interest level of the class, I decided to continue talking about pop art and tie it in with the kids' love of cartooning. I showed the class images created by Roy Lichtenstein.

A few of the students were fortunate to see the Lichtenstein exhibit at the Art Institute over the summer. We had a great conversation about the way Lichtenstein elevated cartooning to "high" art. We also discussed his use of ben-day dots to mimic old printing techniques.
After my five minutes of talking, the class set off to work. Some of them went straight to cartooning, while others explored their own ideas.
