Giant Pop Art Candy Bars

Giant Pop Art Candy Bars

Every year I do this project with our sixth graders.  It is a much anticipated project.  The students get to choose which candy bar they will copy.  These candy bars are very large, 2 x 3′.  We use a real candy bar wrapper and transfer it using the grid system.  The drawing takes a long time, but the kids are really good at adding all the details.  We then paint them with tempera paint and stuff them with newspaper.  The kids work very hard on this project and have much to be proud of when they are done!
