Description: How do we celebrate people or things that we think are trendy? What are today’s trends?  In this week’s camp, participants will learn about the Pop Art Movement, debate what is popular today, and create pieces using 2D and 3D media that will showcase each participant’s favorite people, places, and things. Inspired by Andy Warhol’s Triple Elvis, along with notable pop artists Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, Richard Hamilton, and Peter Blake, this week’s projects will examine the popular then and now. Cost: $250. Lunch is optional.
