Kindergarten Pop Art (and valentines!)

American painter Jasper Johns inspired Dolvin kindergarteners to turn ordinary letters and numbers into extraordinary works of art!  We learned how to draw a "bubble letter," which turns a line into a shape.  Then we added stencils in the background, watercolor resist, colorful stickers and sparkly glitter... definitely an exciting change from boring handwriting sheets. 

As a bonus, while we were adding the glitter in small groups, early finishers created a Jim Dine-style symmetrical heart monoprint, just in time for Valentine's day.


paint a few inches at a time, then fold paper and rub...

... and see the symmetry!


  1. Love the Jasper Johns numbers and what could be more perfect for V-day than Mr. Dine?!!! Fun! : )

  2. this is fun, I'm thinking of doing the numbers for my son's kindergarten class this week :)
