Andy Warhol Painting Class


Andy Warhol was the leader of the visual art movement Pop Art, which flourished in the 1960’s. Using a variety of mediums from painting and silkscreening to photography, film and sculpture, Warhol created art that explored celebrity culture, advertisement and industrial human consumption. Warhol created such famous works as Campbells Soup Cans (1962) and Marilyn Diptych (1962) and a large portfolio of other famous works of art.

During this class we will be learning about the dynamic life of Andy Warhol and the birth of the The Factory. Participants will be learning the practice of silkscreening to create repetitive imagery. For this particular class we will be referring to his iconic Campbell’s Soup Cans. Using a combination of silkscreen and block printing Students will create their very own Andy Warhol inspired print.

This particular class is inspired by the announcement of the SF MOMA’s upcoming exhibition by
