The monthly SML Art Club is introducing teens and adults to the works of American pop artist, Andy Warhol. SML Art Club meetings will take place in January at several Shreve Memorial Library branches. Registration is not required, and no prior artistic experience is needed to attend.
Andy Warhol (1928 – 1987) was an American artist, director and producer who was a leading figure in the visual art movement known as pop art. His works reflected the relationships between artistic expression, advertising and celebrity culture. Some of his best-known works include the silkscreen paintings Campbell’s Soup Cans (1962) and Marilyn Diptych (1962).
Teens and adults are invited to learn more about the artist and make their own pieces of art in his style. Warhol’s paintings were often silkscreen, reproduced serially and painted with bright, vivid colors. The workshops are open to all patrons age 10 and older. The workshops will be held at the following Shreve Memorial Library branches on the dates and times listed below.
SML Art Club meetings are held monthly at various Shreve Memorial Library branches. Classes introduce participants to a variety of artists including Andy Warhol, Vincent Van Gogh, Dale Chihuly, Pablo Picasso, and more. Participants are encouraged to complete original works inspired by the style of the artist of the month.
