Here’s a fun Warhol for kids lesson — making your own original Campbell’s Soup canvas. Andy Warhol popularized this image with his large, multi-colored prints, and now you can have fun with the same image.
I’m providing a can template below so all you need to do is trace it on to dry wax paper, color with Sharpies, and then decoupage on to a canvas. It will look like you drew on the canvas, without the risk of actually doing so.
You can find more projects like this in my “Sharpie Art Workshop for Kids” book, available on in book stores and at Amazon.
- Campbell’s Soup PDF template
- Canvas board or stretched canvas, 11″ x 14″ size
- Dry wax paper, found at local restaurant supply stores or HERE AT AMAZON
- Sharpie marker, ultra fine tip, black
- Sharpie markers, fine tip, assorted colors
- White glue
- Paint brush, I like the foam ones because no broken bristles come off
- Trace Campbell’s Soup can template on to dry wax paper with a thin black Sharpie. Color the can and the background. Cut out with a scissors.
2. Mix white glue with water, 50/50 ratio. Brush watery glue on to canvas and also brush on to back of drawing. Place the drawing on the canvas and brush more watery glue on top to saturate. Brush off excess with fingers. Smooth with fingers again to eliminate and bubbles. Let dry until it is no longer sticky, usually 30 minutes or so.
3. When the dry wax paper dries, it kind of shrinks on to the canvas and looks like you drew on the canvas. A great way to get the look without the risk of actually drawing right on the canvas. A much more practical solution.
