I am a 1-8th grade art teacher in Green Bay, WI. I have concocted some of these lessons or stolen them from other talented teachers. Enjoy!

Warhol Soup Cans

2/3 Artists designed soup cans complete with company name, type of soup, picture of ingredients and spoon. Students learned how to draw a cylinder and were introduced to Andy Warhol's work and life. Students looked at a variety of labels for the important information and what would get a consumer's attention. "Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists--Andy Warhol" DVD was a great ending to our unit. Kids got really creative with soups such as "Candy Corn Soup" and Even "Smores" Soup! One of my favorites showed tiny snails floating in the broth!


  1. Love it. I'm not doing Warhol this year, but will next year. I like the books Uncle Andy's and Uncle Andy's Cats (I think that's the titles) written by his nephew James Warhola. This soup can project is a really cool idea. I'm going to save it!

  2. I love the way your students used a variety of lines. I also like the softness of the colors.
    I have a favorite:) "I can't believe it's soup"
