Week Three: Late 1940's-1950's

This week our artworks will be inspired by both the "high" art of Abstract Expressionism and the "low" art of a newly expanded post-war pop culture. One day we might have fun absorbing the influences of action painting (think Jackson Pollack) and color field painting (think Mark Rothko), and on another day make work related to the birth of rock and roll and artists like Sister Rosetta Tharpe who pioneered the movement.

In each of our four day summer camps, we will explore the visual art and popular culture of a decade (or two), creating works inspired by what we see and learn. We will take our inspiration from artists and art movements, popular trends in clothing, architecture, literature, theatre, film, music, and dance, as well as the historical and social forces that shaped each era. Each camp will include a combination of two dimensional and three dimensional projects in a variety of media, and will be divided into a 6-10 year old age group and an 11-14 year old group.
