Pop, Paint, Print!
Pop artists such as Andy Warhol and James Rosenquist combined popular imagery and a variety of artistic media to create iconic artworks that both challenged and celebrated American culture. In this afternoon workshop, students are introduced to Pop Art and experiment with painting and photo emulsion screenprinting. Students superimpose their own silkscreen stencil onto an acrylic painting to create a mixed-media Pop masterpiece.

The Museum's studio program for adults offers a core curriculum in drawing, painting, printmaking, and three-dimensional media, and also explores the intersections between them. Local and visiting artists help students of all levels and abilities develop skills in media that reflect techniques and themes featured in the Museum’s Collection and special exhibitions. Classes meet for 3–12 weeks, and are designed for anyone interested in exploring specific media in depth; daylong workshops introduce new media or processes.
