Pop Art Animals Workshop

In this painting workshop students talked about the Pop Art movement and looked closely at the Endangered Animal Series by Andy Warhol. A brief demonstration helped students break down animal reference images into basic shapes. Then they began drawing their chosen animals (for this workshop they could choose any animal, although normally I would keep with the endangered theme). Once the drawings were complete students went about painting and finishing their animal portraits in a similar style to Pop Art icon Andy Warhol.

Paint markers and water-soluble oil pastels were used to add lines and details.

Here are a few paintings that the students created:
