1st grade: Delaunay-Inspired Tissue Paper Collage

5th grade: Warhol-inspired Pop Art Painting
5th graders will learn about the Pop Art movement and three of its artists (Claes Oldenburg, Roy Lichtenstein, and Andy Warhol). Inspired by Warhol’s use of everyday items and repetition, students will create a repetitive print-like painting which uses four different color schemes.

Please note: I reserve the right to make changes to the 'Terms of Use' at any time.

A ZIP file is a compressed folder containing multiple files. This type of file format allows you to download many files at once.

Before you can directly access the files, you'll need to "unzip" the file. No worries though, both Windows and Mac OSX are able to open and uncompress ZIP files easily without additional software (iPhones and iPads will require an additional app).

If your computer runs Microsoft Windows: 

  1. Right-click on the unopened ZIP folder.
  2. Choose "Extract All" from the menu that opens.
  3. Choose a destination. This is the place where you want to keep the unzipped files. You can choose "My Documents," for example.
  4. Click "Extract."

If your computer runs Mac OSX: 

Double-click the unopened ZIP — the file should extract automatically. If that doesn't work, hold down the control key and click the ZIP file icon. Choose "Open With" and then select "Archive Utility." The utility will extract the ZIP files, and you can find them in the same folder where you downloaded them.

Still having trouble?

If you're still having trouble getting your files to unzip, I recommend extracting the ZIP file online using one of these free websites:
