Pop Art with Claes Oldenburg

We started a Pop Art unit where all classes learned about awesome artists from this fun and whimsical art movement! We looked at Claes Oldenburg, Andy Warhol, Roy Litchenstein, and Keith Haring who was inspired by them.

Kindergarten and 2nd graders focused on Claes Oldenburg and specially his food sculptures.

Kinder made these super awesome looooong cheeseburgers. Always reviewing proper scissor holding and gluing practices.
