Pop Art (Create It!)
What made pop art special? Readers can find out the answer to this question through the colorful, fun pages of this book, which highlights the major features and figures of pop art. Profiles of Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Richard Hamilton, and more pop artists introduce readers to famous pop art works as well as major techniques each artist used. Then, they can put this knowledge to work in accompanying art projects inspired by the work of the pop artist in that chapter. From using newspaper to make a collage to using benday dots, young artists have a multitude of styles to learn from!
Colorful books engage the reader as they learn about specific art styles and artists of that era. Paul Klee and others represent the abstract movement. Edward Munch and company are here for the Expressionists. Rene Magritte and others show their Surrealist flair! I liked how the books refer to the more well-known artists and bring in others you may not know. About 10 artists are featured in each book. Try out their techniques with some easy art projects as you meet some of the art world’s rebels.
