Pop Art Project
What is Pop art?
Pop Art
Pop art is an art movement that sprung up in the late 1950s that takes an object from mass culture and draws attention to its presence.
Objects such as:
An American artist who was a leading figure in pop art. Best known for his works in celebrity culture, artistic expression, and advertisement.
Roy Lichtenstein
An American pop artist known for his parodist renditions of comic strips.
Recognizable Imagery
Andy Warhol, Cambell's Soup Can, 1964, Silkscreen on canvas
Comic Books
Roy Lichtenstein, Girl with a Tear III, Oil and Magna on canvas
Richard Hamilton, Release, 1972, Screen print on paper
Pop art is not so much the idea of consumerism, but of recognizing the material objects as having a place in society.
Andy Warhol
He spoke very little on the subject of his art, in doing so it made his art stronger.
I wanted to paint nothing. I was looking for something that was the essence of nothing, and the soup can was it. -Andy Warhol
Pop art is a way of liking things. -Andy Warhol

What are your thoughts on pop art and its affect on society?
For your project you will find an image of modern day celebrity popular to your culture. You will represent it in a way similar to Andy Warhol by painting a monochromaticly. You will also write a letter to the celebrity/estate asking if you can use their image in your artwork.
What are some objects that are popular to the current mass culture?
How does Edie Sedgwick describe pop art? Do you agree?
During the early 60s, Lichtenstein was said to be one of the worst artists in the United States. Based on what you know of pop art why do you think this was said?
•Students will be able to identify (DOK 1) pop artists and their contributions to society.
• Students will be able to collect and display (DOK 2) information on pop art and copyright issues that they will use in their final project.
•Students will construct (DOK 3) a piece that glorifies a modern day celebrity by utilizing the grid method and applying a monochromatic paint scale.
Many people thought the practice of collage was not art at all since it did not involve paint. What are your thoughts on this accusation?
