Do you know your pop art artists?
Task One
Looking at Pop Art Sculpture...
Learning Objectives
To learn about the Pop Art movement
To consider the concepts and issues raised by the Pop Art movement.
To study the visual aspects of Popular culture.
To develop strong observational drawings skills
To develop conceptual thinking and design skills
To develop skills in sculptural techniques.

The Pop Art movement
Pop Art was a major Art movement of the 20th Century. It actually began in Britain in 1955 but is mainly associated with American artists.
Pop art and pop culture refers to the products of the mass media evolving in the late 1950s and 60s and also to the works of art that draw upon popular culture - packaging, television, advertisements, comic books, the cinema.
It was a time of enormous economic growth for the States and America was fast becoming a voracious consumer-orientated society.

To understand how to refine and evaluate you work and ideas.
Andy Warhol
Roy Lichtenstein
Claes Oldenburg
Today you will learn:
What Popular culture is
To develop your observational drawing skills and develop your ability to use composition, shape and tone with skill.
Come up with a series of sketches of objects that relate to you.
Popular Culture

Contemporary lifestyle and items that are well known and generally accepted, cultural patterns that are widespread within a population.

Make a list of every day objects that represent your culture and lifestyle…. In computer lab, research and print out visuals to help your sculpture design

The every day object

Popular Culture
Claes Oldenburg

Roy Lichtenstein - sculpture

Andy Warhol

From the group of artists you have learnt about, choose one to study in more detail.
Produce an artist study sheet about your chosen artist.
Include at least two studies of their work, written facts and a title.
Consider the presentation of your sheet.

Task Two
For homework you have been asked to bring in objects from home that represent current day popular culture. Think about how you may arrange these objects to draw from?
Task two – Observational studies
Select from a range of every day objects that you feel represent our day to day lives.
Objects could relate to the products we use, clothes we wear, things we do, items we use etc…
Create a range of detailed tonal studies of these objects.
Use a variety of media to experiment with various effects.

Design Ideas
Consider the action words you have thought of. Choose two that you particularly like.

Considering the action words you have chosen create some simple sketches to explore you ideas for a sculpture.

Choose your two favourite ideas and present in more detail on an A2 sheet. Add colour and detail. Annotate your work, explaining your ideas.

Consider how Oldenburg has developed his ideas for his sculptures. Have a look at some of his initial sketches and drawings. How has he transformed these every day objects into visually interesting and sometimes humorous sculptures?

" Metamorphosis, or the transformation from one thing into another, is a key element in Oldenburg's work. He delights in taking something hard-edged and geometric and making it into something pliable and organic--or vice versa."

What makes a good design idea?

Task Three
Choose your favorite design after a discussion with your teacher.

Begin with the basic structure of your sculpture

Add surface decoration

Finish by adding glaze.

Making your sculpture!
Do you know your pop art artists?
A style of art which explores the everyday imagery that is so much a part of contemporary consumer culture.

Common sources of imagery include advertisements, consumer product packaging, celebrity photographs, and comic strips.

Today we are going to refresh and improve our knowledge on
tonal values
How much do you think you know about tonal values at the moment?

Below is a colour chart:
Red indicates you know very little about something, Amber means you know a little bit
Green means you are confident about it.

Using your colour swatches, hold up the colour that represents your thought on tonal values
Today we are going to refine and develop our knowledge of observational drawing

How confident do you think you are at observational drawing at the moment?

Below is a colour chart:
Red indicates you are not confident
Amber means you are fairly confident
Green means you are very confident

Using your colour swatches, hold up the colour that represents your feelings about carrying out a well proportioned, realistic observational drawing...
On a post - it note write down the grade you would like to be working towards so far on this project...
