POP ART! The Andy Warhol Studio
March 2 – May 25, 2015
ART THAT POPS is coming to the Lisa Ann Watson Children's Discovery Museum from the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh in the form of a unique, interactive exhibit that encourages children to create art in the whimsical spirit of Andy Warhol and the Pop Art movement.
The exhibit is composed of three parts:
Here visitors can try a variety of art-making techniques used by pop artists:
• silkscreen printing
• stamping to make repeat patterns
• using die-cutters to make objects like Warhol’s famous Brillo Boxes
• using various color combinations to recreate some of Warhol’s iconic images
Here visitors can dress up like the characters they see Warhol paintings, play with toys like those collected by Warhol, and learn more about the artist through books and videos.
The Gallery is a space to display artwork created by children from the local community and examples of the iconic prints by Warhol.
Teachers will receive a comprehensive education manual with enriching lesson plans and resources. Sunday Fundays will offer family workshops.
Don't Miss Sunday Fundays!
