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 or a video portrait in the style of Warhol’s Screen Tests.
  • 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.
  • Immigration, Imagination, and the American Dream: Andy Warhol’s parents immigrated to the United States shortly before he was born and struggled to make ends meet as working class Pittsburghers. Learn how Warhol’s immigrant roots and humble beginnings influenced his career and the iconic artworks he went on to create. Using collage and printmaking, students will make projects exploring American symbolism, identity, and cultural heritage.
  • Farhad Moshiri: Go West: Referencing both American and Iranian popular culture, Farhad Moshiri transforms everyday materials such as plastic pearls, glass beads, crystals, Persian rugs and kitchen knives into works of art. Students will tour both the permanent collection and special exhibition then visit the studio to create art using nontraditional materials.
