Jasper Johns Inspired Names

Fourth grade students learned about the artist Jasper Johns.  He was an influential artist during the Pop Art movement.  Jasper Johns was known for painting images that the public was familiar with such as the American flag, numbers and a map of the United States.  Students painted something familiar with them; their name, as the subject matter of their artwork and used a grid method similar to Jasper Johns.
