The 8th grade students created linocut prints in the style of Andy Warhol. Inspiration for this artwork came from Andy Warhol's Campbell's Soup Can paintings that are key works of the 1960s Pop Art movement. Warhol himself said, “Pop art is about liking things,” and claimed that he ate Campbell’s soup every day for 20 years. Students explored the concept of liking something so much; one is compelled to create art about that thing. Each student chose a food item that they could eat everyday for 20 years and carved out linoleum for printing.
