This lesson plan is designed to teach students about Roy Lichtenstein while learning about Color Theory & Contrast.
This lesson works well for the Classical Conversations’ Cycle 3, Week 18 (C3W18) fine arts. However, it can be used in a variety of circumstances. Looking for more help? We have a full page of free and paid helps for Cycle 3!
This 13-page lesson plan includes:

- 3 Color wheels to show students
- A carefully crafted summary sentence about Roy Lichtenstein (ideal for memorization)

*Most of my lesson plans include printable images of the artist’s work within the lesson plan. However, since Roy Lichtenstein’s art work is still under copyright, I can not include them in this product. You can easily follow the links provided where you will find printable images of his art.
This lesson is also available at a discount in the “Amazing American Artists Deluxe Package” which includes 6 lesson plans, plus extras, and is ideal for weeks 13-18 of Fine Arts in a cycle 3 Classical Conversations Foundations community.
