  2. 2. Pop  Art:  A  New  ArIsIc  Movement  •  What  Is  Pop  Art?    -­‐The  term  Pop-­‐Art  was  invented  by  BriIsh  curator  Lawrence  Alloway  in  1955,  to  describe  a  new  form  of  "Popular"  art  -­‐  a  movement  characterized  by  the  imagery  of  consumerism  and  popular  culture.    -­‐Challenged  tradiIonal  art  through  the  use  of  the  mass-­‐produced  popular  culture  could  be  considered  “fine  art”.    -­‐  Removed  the  material  from  its  context  and  isolates  the  object,  or  combines  it  with  other  objects,  for  contemplaIon.  Floor  Burger  (1971)  Claes  Oldenburg  Three  Flags    (1958)  Jasper  Johns  
  3. 3. Pop  Art  History  ConInued  •  Abstract  Expressionism:  This  movement  was  the  popular  form  of  art  at  the  Ime.  (1950’s)  •  This  school  of  art  believed  in  “painterly”  strokes  and  using  ones  subconscious  to  create  work.  •  Pop  Art  reacted  to  this  by  playing  on  moIfs  found  in  the  visual  culture.  Instead  of  isolaIng  oneself  in  the  mind,  pop  arIsts  synthesizd  the  commercial  world  and  held  the  mirror  up  to  it.  Franz  Klein   Andy  Warhol  
  4. 4. Pop  cont…  •  Thus  they  focused  on  the  preoccupaIons  shared  by  most  American  consumers:  food,  cars  ,  death,  and  love.    •  Typically,  this  was  achieved  using  brash,  or  saIrical,  imagery  with  strong  visual  impact:    ”we  are  holding  the  mirror  up  to  "modern  society”.  •  Pop-­‐art  was  "the"  post-­‐war  expression  of  a  world  wholly  preoccupied  the  pursuit  of  materialism.  Just  what  is  it  That  Makes  Today’s  Homes  so  Different,  so  Appealing?  (1956)  Richard  Hamilton  President  Elect  (1960)  James  Rosenquist

  19. 19. Oil  Pastel  coloring  techniques  •  Step  1:  LIGHTLY  draw  the  contour  of  your  object,  subject.    •  Do  not  shade  with  your  pencil-­‐  save  that  for  the  oil  pastels.  
  20. 20. Oil  Pastel  coloring  techniques  •  Step  2:  Looking  at  your  object  choose  its  MEDIUM  color.    •  This  is  the  color  that  is  not  the  lightest  or  the  darkest.    •  Color  these  medium  tones  in  each  part  of  your  drawing.  Use  broad  light  strokes-­‐  DO  NOT  press  hard  with  the  oil  pastels  at  this  point.  
  21. 21. Oil  Pastel  coloring  techniques  •  Step  3  :  Choose  different  light  and  dark  tones.    •  Start  lightly  blocking  in  the  light  and  darks.    •  This  is  why  it  is  most  important  that  you  have  a  reference  and  not  making  it  up.  References  take  the  guess  work  out  of  color  choice.  •  DO  NOT  press  hard  yet  with  the  pastels.  Build  up  your  service  first.  
  22. 22. Oil  Pastel  coloring  techniques  •  Step  4:  Now,  using  your  MEDIUM  tone  start  blending  your  colors  together.  This  means  you  can  press  hard  with  the  pastels  now.    •  Because  we  are  working  with  POP  Art  style,  feel  free  to  squeeze  in  unexpected  colors.  •  Ajer  that  press  hard  with  your  lights  and  darks  to  make  your  drawing  richer!  •  You  can  also  use  your  fingers  to  smooth  pigment  together.
