Jewish Heritage Month – Roy Lichtenstein Activity

May is Jewish American Heritage month and this week we are learning about the pop artist, Roy Lichtenstein.  He was one of the pioneers of the pop art movement and is known for using a system called Ben-Day dots for his well known comic book-like paintings.

For this activity, you’ll need a pencil, sharpie, paper, ruler, round bowl for tracing, and dot markers.

Use a small round bowl or lid to trace half of the sun at the bottom center of your paper with a pencil. I used paper cut from a roll so I taped the corners in order to keep it from rolling.

Draw the waves and use a ruler to draw the sun rays.

Go over the pencil lines with a sharpie.

I taped a copy of the original painting onto the wall for my son to use as a reference.
