Lesson Title: Andy Warhol Inspired Art

Grade level: 9-12

Reference sites:;;

A. Target Audience
Target audience will be grades 9-12. We will be presenting this lesson plan to our
eleventh grade art class. There are 22 students in the class. The lesson plan will be
taught at Auburn High School in art class. The socioeconomic status of the school is
rather high. The school is located a mile from the very well known Auburn University.
The students should have basic knowledge of how to use a digital camera, computer,, and Students should know how to upload photos,
research, and look for images on the internet. Students with special needs will have
assistance on the assignment.

B. Environment
The lesson will be presented in the art room for the students. Then we will proceed to the
computer lab. The computer lab is located right next door to the art room. The students
will all have their own separate computer to do their work. We will have five digital
cameras that the students can take turns using. The students that want to use a digital
camera to take their pictures can go five at a time. The other students waiting on the
camera can be working on their blogs until they are done.

C. Summary of Lesson
The content being taught teaches the students about history and PopArt. The lesson gets
the students’ creative juices flowing, and they can also learn about themselves and their
classmates. The students are required to find at least three photos that represent
something about themselves. The lesson requires the students to learn about different
types of color schemes as well. The students will not be required to present their photos
to the class, but they are expected to read their classmates blogs and look at their photos.
By doing this, the students will learn about one because they will be reading the answers
to the five questions presented about Andy Warhol and their thoughts on things. They
are using technology by using the internet, digital cameras,, and, which is a Web2.0 tool. As the teachers, we will present the lesson through
an interesting and fun PowerPoint presentation to get them interested. We will provide
the digital cameras for the students, and help them with any questions they may have.
We will thoroughly present the lesson and explain what exactly it is we want from them,
and the purpose of this activity.

products and processes
using technology. Students:
a. apply existing knowledge to generate new ideas, products, or processes.
b. create original works as a means of personal or group expression.
c. use models and simulations to explore complex systems and issues.
d. identify trends and forecast possibilities.

6. Technology Operations and Concepts
Students demonstrate a sound understanding of technology concepts, systems, and
operations. Students:
a. understand and use technology systems.
b. select and use applications effectively and productively.
c. troubleshoot systems and applications.
d. transfer current knowledge to learning of new technologies.

F. Student objectives for the lesson
“At the completion of this assignment, students will be able to:
      Basic recall of the time when PopArt became popular, about Andy Warhol, and
       color schemes.
      Be able to associate art to their personal lives, use creativity to edit photos, and
       describe their feelings about Andy Warhol and his art.
      Applying their creativity and personal thoughts to art as Andy Warhol did.
      Explain and analyze their thoughts on the subject and why they chose the pictures
       they did by answering the five questions presented.
      Presenting items and thoughts together in new ways, based on the presented
      Evaluate the work of Andy Warhol and compare their work with Andy’s.

G. Length of the lesson activity
The lesson should stretch over two class periods. The first class period will be for taking
or finding the photos, and editing the photos. The second class period will be for
answering the questions on their blog accounts, and uploading the photos to their blog.
Reading over their classmates and discussing them.

H. Preparation
1. Research information on Andy Warhol
2. Create a brief Power Point to refresh students’ memory about Warhol’s life and works
3. Get students to create Photobucket and Blogger accounts if they don’t already have
4. Sign up for computer lab time in the school library
5. Have digital cameras from the media center available for the students if needed

I. Plan and schedule of activities
Day One:
1. Show students the PowerPoint about Andy Warhol
2. Go to computer lab to have students create Photobucket & Blogger accounts if they
need to
3. Get digital cameras to students if they want to take a picture around campus
4. Get other students to look for pictures online by using search engines like Google
5. Show students how to use Photobucket to edit their pictures into Warhol-inspired
works by walking them through the different editing techniques. Then have them create
their own pictures
6. Make sure students save their work to the hard drives before ending the class period
Day Two:
1. Go to the computer lab again
2. Students will answer the questions provided about the activity on their blogs
3. Students will upload their three pictures to their Warhol blogs
4. Make sure that students read their peers’ answers and look at all of the created works
before leaving the computer lab

J. List of materials needed
Power Point presentation
Handouts (Assignment sheet, quotes, questions)
Rubrics for evaluation
Digital Cameras

K. Assessment
The questions that the students answer on their blogs will evaluate whether or not they
have learned about the time when PopArt became popular, about Andy Warhol, and
about color schemes. These questions will also evaluate the way that they associate the
art with their lives, how they compare Warhol’s work to their own, and how they feel
about Warhol’s art. The creativity and personality brought to the art will be evaluated on
a visual basis.

L. Adaptations
This lesson will be adapted for students with special needs by providing longer work
times for those who need them and/or giving students smaller workloads. Students who
need teaching aids may also use them for this lesson. For students with visual
disabilities, the computers used will be equipped with programs to read aloud everything
on the screen.
As a backup for failed technology, students will be expected to create their own original
Pop Art with regular art media such as colored pencils, oil pastels, and paint.

M. Justification
Power Point will help the students because it is a much more interesting way to present
information. They will likely pay more attention, in turn learning more from the
presentation than they would from a traditional lecture. Photobucket will help the
students learn to use photo editing techniques that are more of a personal skill that a lot of
people would like to have. Seeing the way Photobucket employs different editing
methods will help the students see in a simplified manner, the ways that Andy Warhol
decided which colors and methods to use for his Pop Art. Using a blog to answer
questions allows students to conquer another Web 2.0 technology which will be useful
for further education and careers. Blogs will also help students learn from one another’s
answers. Seeing everyone else’s responses will show the students some different ways of
thinking and different visions that others have. Some students also feel more comfortable
talking about their feelings and their art work on something like a blog rather than getting
up in front of the class to talk about it.
