Pop Art

Here is a reading on pop art along with its attendant vocabulary-building and comprehension worksheet. I suspect, with the right student or students, this reading and worksheet could be the beginning of a high-interest unit on pop art that would include the artists specified in the reading–Andy Warhol (of course), Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Larry Rivers, Roy Licthenstein, Duane Hanson, Claes Oldenburg–and grow to include Jean-Michel Basquiat and perhaps some graffiti artists. Futura comes to mind.

If you find typos in these documents, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
