The international phenomenon that was Pop Art emerged in the mid-1950s and early 1960s. Some six decades later, the influence and mark of pop art artists can be seen in almost every aspect of our modern society & culture. This art movement aimed to elevate popular culture to the level of fine art, thus blurring the lines between high and low arts. With one of the key principles being that there is no hierarchy of culture and that art should be able to borrow from any source, Pop Art challenged the traditions of fine art, questioned the established framework of creation and introduced a whole new world of aesthetics. In this super awesome class we will live demo some cool brush techniques & principles made famous by these artists- past and present and employ them into our own work. Each week we will pick a different artist to borrow from: Basquiat, Warhol, Roy Lichenstein or Jackson Pollack… Mixed Media & Collage can also be employed. Choose your favorite medium & embark on a unique creative journey with us, learn professional artistic techniques & pick up fun tips the pros use all.
