5.18 | Pop Art | Part 1 | Media & Methods Unit

Hi Artists! We are finishing up the Media & Methods unit by learning about the Pop Art Movement. Popular art or pop art is a movement that started in the 1950s and 1960s in America and Europe. This movement was basically a reaction against the traditional art ways. The inclusion of bright primary colors like red, yellow and blue is an example. The main common point is the usage of everyday objects for the creation of art pieces. We are bringing our attention to Pop Artist, Roy Lichtenstein. The unique feature of his paintings is that they look like a comic strip. According to the pop artists, the traditional art was basically for the elites which are why they have to create things for the masses, or in other words the general public. It was an art movement for ALL people. 1. Watch the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xzx06iImYY 2. Start looking for panels (from comic books, comic strips, or Google search) that appeal to you. Keep in mind if the drawing has enough comic book elements such as characters in cool action poses, dynamic bubble or block letters, action lines, speech or think bubbles, etc. 3. Once you find 2-3 panels that you like, take a pic or screenshot of them and share on the first slide of the Seesaw template. Remember: For Part 2 next week, you will select one of the panels and do your best in copying the image in a larger size. I will provide a demo next week too. If you have any questions, please contact your art teacher and they will be happy to help you. Have fun and MAY THE ARTS BE WITH YOU! Mr. Belonio
