Guess who we just studied??

Roy Lichtenstein created large reproductions of comics that commented on society.  We simply drew them huge and changed the speech bubble to be funny or make a statement.


Andy Goldsworthy goes into nature and creates art pieces with found materials.  He photographs them and then leaves to let nature take its course.  Check out more of ours in the 8th grade section.
