I did a Lichtenstein project with my 7th graders last year that was really
successful. After introducing them to Lich. ( books, slides etc.) they made
their own cartoon Lich. style. I brought in comics that would lend
themsleves to the project like, Spiderman, Brenda Star, Judge Parker,
Superman. They each had a single frame of the cartoon to work from. on
large poster board 22x28 approx. they copied the cartoon using a grid
method. They used waterproof markers ( sharpies ) to do the line work and
tempra to fill in the color. Some called for 3 coats of tempra. They
retraced the line work with the markers because the tempra covered some areas
up. I explained that Lich. did do some art without the dots and so we would
also. Some students chose to change the text in the speech bubble. Some of
the cartoons were in black and white so the students had to choose primary
colors when it came time to paint them in. They were pleased with the
results. Cool stuff for their bedrooms. I only had them for 45 minutes
every 6 days and doing the dots would have taken too long.
