Starting next week Monday on February 15, your child can become a mini Andy Warhol at Atelier Sanlitun’s Pop Art Camp.
This five-day camp, will have participants learning about the art form that first took hold in the 1950’s, and how it upended the conventions of snooty galleries by incorporating elements of pop culture.
Warhol’s screen printing technique – in which he cast portraits of Marilyn Monroe, Campbell’s soup cans, and other iconic images in surreal new color tones – is likely the most iconic work of that era. Aside from learning how to make their own vibrant screen prints, the campers will also be making their own renditions of Lichtenstein’s comic strips and Oldenberg’s soft sculptures. Participants will also learn how to make self portraits and use stencils before the week is over.
The camp runs from February 15-19, and is open from 10am-noon for 5-8 year olds, 1.30-4pm for 9-12 year olds, and costs RMB 1500 per student for the week. For more information call 010-64161614 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
