They would probably enjoy learning and creating 3-D Pop Art. You could feature an artist like Claes Oldenberg. Other artist for 2 and 3-D could be Tom Wesselmann, Roy Lichenstein and Peter Max. Peter has done a lot of images for worthy causes using the Statue of Liberty and he recently did a great HUGE guitar for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Also, you could expand into Op art (optical illusions) and look at Victor Vasarely , M.C. Escher and Bridget RiIey.

I have been assigned a pop art class that meets once a week for the whole year. Has anyone else had to teach this for the whole year? What artists do you include?
To date I have assembled a lot of Andy Warhol stuff as well as some of his contemporaries. I fear that I will run out of activities before June.
