5th Grade Can’t Miss the Work of Claes Oldenburg

Fifth graders were introduced to the Pop Art sculptures of Claes Oldenburg.  They’ve learned about Pop Art before, in 4th grade when we did our Warhol portraits, so they had some knowledge to build on.  We recalled that Pop Art got its name from it subject matter, everyday items from POPular culture.

During Mrs. Delk’s (Osborne’s) class, we found this link http://www.artsconnected.org/artsnetmn/spaces/spoon/spoon1.html.  It has some great videos of the artist telling about his art and his ideas.  Check it out, and keep your eyes peeled for our clay Pop Art sculptures in the near future!
