Pop Art Sardines: A Study of W. Kevin Murray's Art

Saw this really cool POP ART Sardine Picture on So, I researched the artist  W. Kevin Murray's Art. He has an Etsy store. Click here to check it out. This piece of art won Member's Mention award in the art exhibit Ripped Off '04...I just thought it was so cool and a great way to introduce use of oil pastels to Middle School Kids. We covered many Elements and Principles of Art with this lesson.
12x18 colored construction paper
Assorted Oil Pastels

Happy Friday
