Fourth grade students have begun a painting project based on Robert Indiana’s Love images.
Robert Indiana, born Robert Clark (born September 13, 1928), is an American artist associated with the pop art movement. His “LOVE” print, first created for the Museum of Modern Art‘s Christmas card in 1965, was the basis for the widely-distributed 1973 United States Postal Service “LOVE” stamp. His media include paper (silk screen) and Cor-ten steel sculpture.
Students were divided into groups to work cooperatively on this project.
Every group explored new painting techniques for the background of their image.
The groups enjoyed using the liquid watercolor.
Every group mixed their warm colors in a unique manner to create a variety of effects. It will be interesting to see how each group creates their version of Love by Robert Indiana.
