How do we use these concepts in design?

What commercial ways do we see them used in society?

5th grade students created these text/photo canvases from magazine print and altered images in honor of Andy Warhol's "Pop" style. 


Students were given an 8x10 canvas board.
We used acrylic paint for the background- their choice of patterns.
They collected the first letter of their name- looking for unique print in random magazines.
FotoFlexer.com altered our portraits.
Mod Podge (gloss) is a fantastic way to glue letters on and seal the final work.
