See some of Andy Warhol's most famous works here.

Be sure to give your child plenty of time to study each work of art. Ask: What's the first thing you notice about Andy Warhol's work? How is his work different from other artists' we've studied? How is it similar? What do you think the artist was thinking and feeling while he worked? What do you think he wanted to say with his art? What sort of colors did he like to use? What kind of subjects did he prefer?

  1. Very cool. Our public schools have a wonderful program called TIC TOC that allows parents into the classrooms once a month to teach the students about specific artists, movements and styles. It's a fun, interactive way to introduce the kids to cultures past and present. Andy Warhol is always a favorite topic. :)

    I have an entire pinterest board dedicated to these types of lessons. I'm adding this post to it! http://www.pinterest.com/tanyadennis/tic-toc-art-projects-with-kids/
