Warhol Workshop Descriptions:

  • Pop Portraits: Examine the many ways in which Warhol created portraits throughout his career, from painting and polaroids to silkscreening and selfies. Students will create a silkscreen print of a contemporary Pop culture icon.
  • Exploring Warhol’s Print Process: This advanced printmaking workshop introduces students to Warhol’s multilayered screen prints as well as his stamped and stenciled early commercial work, exploring a range of processes and the visual impact of repetition and pattern. Studio projects include silkscreen printing and rubber-stamping.
  • Sensory Friendly Workshop: Designed for people with developmental disabilities of all ages to experience the museum. This tour and workshop combination includes visits to the galleries and hands on art making inspired by Warhol’s artistic practice. Workshops are designed to be both accessible and consider the needs of all participants. Prior to the workshop, educators will work with you to create custom images to be screen-printed on t shirts, tote bags, and/or posters.
  • From Pop to Abstraction: Andy Warhol is best known for his Pop Art masterpieces, but he also created a range of abstract artworks! Students will learn about Warhol’s experimentation with abstraction and his innovative use of materials as they create a work that combines the surprises of abstraction with silkscreen printing. Project choices are inspired by Warhol’s Oxidations and other elements of abstract art.
  • Cultural Connections: Explore consumerism, media exploitation, race/ethnicity, LGBTQ+ identity, class consciousness, religion, and other sociopolitical themes in relation to Andy Warhol’s art and life. Conversations will vary depending on artworks on view and the interests of the visiting group. Students will use these discussions as catalysts to explore their own identities through mixed media screen printing in the studio, representing themselves and the world around them.
  • KAWS + Warhol: Students will explore the overlapping themes and artistic approaches of two of history’s most recognizable Pop Artists. Both artists created work that critiqued and commented on pop culture, even as they brought recognizable mainstream images into a fine art context to change and subvert their common meanings. Students will learn about appropriation, repetition, and commercialism and create their own artwork in the studio. (Available May 21, 2024-January 20, 2025).
