For the Love of Pop ArtI have always been drawn to Pop Art since my first Art History class in college. I think primarily because of the bright colors that pop artists use, but also because their inspiration is from everyday items in their immediate environment, such as consumer goods and mass media imagery like movie stars, cartoons, etc. Pop Art began in the 1950s but gained popularity in the 1960s and was started in Britain, but quickly migrated to New York. Its style is based on simple bold images of everyday items like soup cans painted in bright colors or photos of celebrities, comic strips and animals.
Popular or famous Pop artists included Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. Both artists challenged traditional boundaries of painting by merging painting with photography and printmaking. Most of us are familiar with the famous Campbells soup can or the multiple color study of Marilyn Monroe by Andy Warhol.
********POP ART SELFIE CLASS ------ SATURDAY, OCTOBER 12 @ 2 pm **********
Because of my love of pop art, we are so excited at Pinot’s Palette Leawood to be offering our own Pop Art Selfie Class on Saturday, October 12th!
How it will work is that painters will send us a photo of themselves, child, spouse, friend or pet. We will posterize the image and print it directly on the canvas. You can choose between having one copy of your image on the canvas or having it printed 4 times like the famous Marilyn Monroe painting by Warhol.

***The deadline to submit your reservation and photo will by October 2nd.***
