Ms. McDonough's UA Class: Week of 9/21 - 9/25

Pop Art: A mid-20th century style of art where artists used everyday objects—comic strips, soup cans, newspapers, and more—into their work. The Pop art movement wanted to show that art could come from any source. Below are some examples of Pop Art.

 

“Look Mickey” by Roy Lichtenstein 1961

 

Andy Warhol’s Campbells Soup

 

Which piece do you like the best?

 Why do you like it more than the others?

Please take an object you have from around your home to create your own “Pop Artwork”. For example; use a favorite toy, stuffed animal, household item (like ipad or a banana) and draw it several times like the art from Andy Warhols Campbells Soup (Example above).

Once you're done repeating your drawing many times; add color with any coloring supplies you have at your home!
