About the Pop Art Assignment

Thank you for your reflection papers and your development work on your final Pop Art Compositions. Today’s critique was very good and it did well to demonstrate how much you have learned about Pop Art, Pop Artists, Color Theory, as well as the imagery, motifs, methods and techniques used in Pop Art.

Continue to work on finishing up this assignment, keeping in mind that all development work and reference work are essential parts of the production of the final piece. In case you are wondering, you will be reproducing your Pop Art Compositions with digital media.
