It was a busy morning in the art room today with Grade 5/6 students creating 3D forms of ice creams and donuts in preparation for applying paper mâché next week.
During this Unit of work, students will be learning about and exploring Pop Art. Our artists for inspiration are Claes Oldenburg and Wayne Thiebaud.
Oldenburg is an American sculptor – best known for his public art installations typically featuring large replicas of everyday objects. Thiebaud is an American painter widely known for his colorful works depicting commonplace objects and food from popular culture.
I showed this short YouTube video to my students today – It is a nice little introduction to Pop Art. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhEyoDCTSDQ
