Warhol Art Trading Cards

If you are familiar with Andy Warhol’s art, then you might know that he celebrated repetition that came with popular art images like the Campbell’s soup can. I made a custom ATC template that you can download HERE so students can come up with their own creative soup flavors.
1. Print one sheet of soup can drawings on white card stock paper for each student. They are to color the top half with any marker color. I like the Stabilo brand you can find at Aaron Brothers.
2. Using the color for inspiration, students write in the flavor of their soup with a thin black marker.
3. An icon drawing that describes their soup is added inside the circle. For example, the Strawberry Soup has a strawberry that is drawn inside the circle.
4. When all 9 cards are colored in with markers, they are cut apart on the crop lines. Slide them into plastic trading card sleeves that you can find at Staples, and have fun!

This is such a great project idea for ATCs Kathy! I love it and just pinned to my Art Lesson board -- you always have fantastic ideas. Thank you for all of your hard work. I know we don't hear that often enough as mothers, teachers, and bloggers!

Wonderful idea. My student's just finished learning all about Any Warhol and I thought that this would be the perfect extension lesson to do with my 3rd Grade Classes! Thanks for sharing all of your great ideas with us!
