Summer Art Camp 2020

Week 11: Post-Modernism (Pop Art) · August 10-14

1950 – Present, UK and US The Postmodernism movement reconciles art with everyday life. Pop(ular) Art is part of Postmodernism and might be considered the most fun “ism” of all because it can include everyday things that are turned into art, such as a Campbell soup can, a comic book, a famous photographic image or a toy balloon. Try your hand at creating your own Pop Art, using bold colors, simple images and everyday objects as inspiration. Artists: Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons, Roy Liechtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, Keith Haring, Wayne Thiebaud.
