In this post, we're sharing an easy and fun technique kids of all ages can work with to create their own pop art artwork! 

We have recreated this famous work of Roy Lichtenstein - in a kid-friendly way. His cartoon-inspired work and use of primary colours is very child friendly so perfect for a pop art for kids art project. 

Lichtenstein's technique of using Ben-Day dots in his artwork caused quite the uproar in the art circles back in the 60' when he first became a household name and his approach to art still inspires many to this day and it's obvious as to why. 

He created the 'Sunrise' later in his life when his work had changed into a more abstract style but still had his legendary signature all over, mostly due to his dotted technique.

And Roy Lichtenstein's use of Ben-Day dots is exactly what inspired us to create this kid friendly art project!
