Geneseo 7th grade art students studied artwork from Jasper Johns and prints from Andy Warhol to inspire them to create their own “Pop Art Prints” Using linoleum easy cut blocks and their first name, students carved their creative initial. After repeating the printing process at least 16 times, then students chose a color group to guide the mixing of oil pastels in the negative spaces provided from their multiple prints. The results are stunning, similar to Jasper Johns “Numbers” series.
