Week Seven – Day Five – Friday 22nd May
Hello – welcome to your Art session.

Andy Warhol took what we thought we knew about art and turned it on its head. His work makes us ask questions like:
In the 1960s Andy Warhol became known as one of the leading artists of the pop art movement.
Pop artists felt that art should reflect modern life and so they made art inspired by the world around them – from movies, advertising and pop music to comic books and even product packaging.
DESIGN YOUR OWN SOUP CAN
Warhol was famous for exploring everyday and familiar objects in his work, using brands such as Coca-Cola, Brillo and Campbell’s Soup.
He liked the idea of taking ordinary things, for example cereal or bananas, and turning them into art.
He did this with his famous print of a tomato soup can. He also made a print of every type of soup that Campbell's made! Including the one below: Black Bean.
Warhol would then replicate the design inside a grid:
I would like you to have a go at designing your own soup-inspired ‘pop art’! It can be a real soup flavour or an imaginary one!
THINGS TO THINK ABOUT
Once completed, maybe you could send me a photo of your image to upload to the gallery.
