Firstly today we had a little discussion about POP ART and what we were going to do. We then got some black and white prints by Roy Lichenstein. We each had a particular print and we all had to draw a copy of this print. After doing the first print I did another drawing but this time I added colour. Finally we all had to pick out our favourite cartoon character. My favourite cartoon character is Bugs Bunny which was printed from the internet. Then we sat down and copied our cartoon characters in our sketch books.

Post from Happy Wanderer

Dear Hazel,
I am sending you a picture of me drawing at college. I hope you like it. This picture is called POP ART. My picture is of a girl with a ball and I drew it over tracing paper. I did a drawing of Garfield the cat which I drew freehand. I started with the outline then pencilled in the detail.
Hope you like it. Please get in contact with Happy Wanderer.

Post From Happy Wanderer - Pop Art

We looked at Pop Art from 1950s on a Powerpoint. The tutor explained everything on the board.We looked at art by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichenstein and Claes Oldenburg. Andy Warhol painted cans of soup, brillo pads and painted Cassius Clay also Marilyn Monroe and Mick Jagger.

I painted a portrait of Jet using water colours. I then created portraits of Jet using acrylic paint and I also finished my picture of Jet. I quite enjoyed doing the Pop art , I have learnt quite a lot today.

I had a talk with the deputy Principle of Bexhill college, I showed him all my pictures and the one on the wall, and in my art book, He said to me that I had done very well.
