Andy Warhol Art Project for Kids

We learned about Andy Warhol.

Andy Warhol was a pop artist who lived until 1987. Bright colors showing familiar objects define his work. As a young artist, he was employed by a shoe company and became famous for his advertisements. He painted faces of famous people and often repeated his images like they were repeated on store shelves.

One of his most famous images is his Campbell's Soup Can. After reading Andy Warhol (Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists) my daughter created a picture of a black bean can as it is a familiar object in our house.


Living during the 1900's, Andy Warhol lived before the cell phone and internet age. He painted repeated images of objects familiar during his time. I asked my daughter what she thought he would have painted if he were alive today. Her answer............

iPhones.
