Make it Pop!
The Art Explorers series offers a new approach to learning art. Rather than emphasize historical information, these books encourage kids to describe and interpret what they see in famous artworks, then try some of the techniques themselves. Make it Pop! Shows kids how artists turned images of popular people, everyday things and even throwaway stuff into imaginative works of art. This fourth book in the Art Explorers series invites kids to explore the fun-filled world of Pop Art. For each artist, a colour reproduction of a famous work is paired with exploratory questions. An information blurb explains how the work was made and the artist’s intention, emphasizing facts of interest to kids. Following are art projects that tie into the artist and his/her techniques. The activities are illustrated with examples done by actual kids._x000D__x000D_“Highly useful and entertaining.”--School Library Journal_x000D_“Offers creative ideas for children.”--Publishers Weekly_x000D_“Well done.”--Kirkus Reviews_x000D_Art Work Included:_x000D_[TK] Andy Warhol (The Andy Warhol Foundation, New York)_x000D_“Girl with a Ball” by Roy Lichtenstein (Musuem of Modern Art, New York)_x000D_“Map” by Jasper Johns (Museum of Modern Art, New York)_x000D_“Retroactive” by Robert Raushenberg (Wadsworth Atheneum, Hartford, CT))_x000D_“Soft Fur Good Humors” by Claus Oldenburg (Private collection of Will and Anne Hokin)_x000D_“Diner” by George Segal (Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN)_x000D_Also Available:_x000D_0-8230-2506-3 / 978-0-8230-2506-0 Express Yourself: … Adventures in Expressionism_x000D_0-8230-2503-9 / 978-0-8230-2503-9 Picture This! … Adventures in Impressionism_x000D_0-8230-2502-0 / 978-0-8230-2502-2 Imagine That! … Adventures in Surrealism_x000D_About the author:_x000D_Joyce Raimondo was the family programmes coordinator at The Museum of Modern Art in NewYork for eight years.
