School Tour | May 21 to October 16, 2022

From Warhol to Banksy

Dates: May 21 to October 16, 2022
Art Activity: Self-Portrait

Banksy, Girl With Balloon, 2015, screen print, 26 x 22 in.

From Warhol to Banksy gives students a unique opportunity to view some of the most iconic images of the 20th and 21st centuries. Featuring a wide range of Pop Art from a number of international artists, this exhibition comes to us courtesy of the Paul and Tracy Mitchell Collection. Students will be able to see for themselves some of Pop Art’s most recognizable images, from Andy Warhol’s Tomato Soup silkscreen print to graffiti artist Banksy’s Girl With Balloon as well as many more visually arresting images.

Art Activity: Once they have been inspired by these images, students will be able to create their own piece of Pop Art. They will draw a self-portrait and use tempera paint sticks and simple print methods to make it ‘pop’!
