Andy Warhol Dog Painting - 5th grade

I got the idea for this lesson from a reusable bag I saw at Pets Mart.  We read the book "Uncle Andy" a story about Andy Wharol written by his nephew.  Then the students drew a small line drawing of a dog.  Next, I showed students how to trace their own art work by putting it on a window so you can see through the paper. They traced their dog four times. 

Next, Students began the mixing tints, shades, and intermediate colors.  They love mixing paint.  Sometimes they mix and mix and mix and mix...and don't paint anything in a class period!  I wish we had more art time!

One of the students wore this shirt to show me...she made a connection!
