Roy Lichtenstein Art Game
Are you looking for a fun way to supplement your art history lessons? Going to be absent and need last minute art sub plans? Fill up your sub tub with low-prep art lessons like this Roy Lichtenstein art project that excites students. Teach your students about pop art, benday dots, silkscreening, and how to show movement in a work of art.
Are you trying to foster more independence in your art room? This Roy Lichtenstein art art game makes for the best and most productive early finisher activity for your students. You can set up a choice-based art center where students select an activity amongst different ones. Print out the game board and directions back to back, put them in a labeled folders, and let them pick what they’d like to create. This is similar to a directed drawing activity in which students are guided through the art process.
If you’re a teacher looking for a differentiated art lesson that boosts independent thinking, problem-solving, and skill-acquisition, this will do the trick.
- Create easy staff lines by taping five pencils together. Practice using this new tool before starting a final composition. Draw curved lines that lead off the page.
- Erase any parts where the staff overlaps itself.
- Roll the die to select the first pattern to draw in between the staff.
- Roll two more times to determine the last two patterns. Draw them between the staff.
- Then roll the die two more times to select music notes and symbols. Draw them on the staff, balacing them throughout the composition.
- Use black permanent marker to outline everything.
- Color your design with markers, crayons, or colored pencils.
I’ve included three ways students can generate their design. The first is the game board where students roll the die to select their parts. The second is a “you pick” board. Both of these are printables. And lastly, for teachers needing engaging lessons during distance learning, I’ve added digital spinner wheels!
First, print out the Roy Lichtenstein art game and picture directions back-to-back. Then give your students dice and watch them have fun creating their own art project independently. If you have access to a smartboard or projector, use the accompanying PowerPoint presentation. It will guide the students during each part of the art project.
Once completed, have students use the self-assessment rubrics to evaluate their artwork based on craftsmanship, creativity, following directions, work habits, project goals, and clean up. And then have them complete the “Big Ideas” sheet so they can connect the creation process to their learning.
If you are substituting or need a fast finisher activity, use the included coloring page.

Great way to introduce art history in the classroom! – Fairlle L.
My Art students love doing these sheets, and they are learning about more Artists as they do! Also, perfect for Art Sub Plans! – Denise F.
I have used a number of these artist lessons and have always found them to be interesting and a lot of fun. They are a great way to wrap up a look at a particular artist and are fun and creative to try some of the concepts used by that artist. They are a popular activity and are asked for quite frequently. I like how they turn out differently no matter how many times the particular artist lesson is used. – Martha S.
