Pop Art describes the lively art based around our popular culture. In this fun class ask yourself, can you create a delicious textured painting of your favorite dessert which: drips, crunches, is frosted, glistens, spreads, is chunky or whipped? We’ll explore basic color theory, experiment with textured painting techniques, and finally take our delicious dessert painting, and turn it into a painted clay sculpture!
