PRES 686 PMA Featured Exhibition - International Pop - Teacher Resources for the Classroom

3 credits 42.0 hours
600 level graduate course

Utilizing the ‘International Pop’ exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art as a source for inspiration and enterprise, this course will explore the dynamic two- and three-dimensional bold and thought-provoking imagery that constitutes pop art in its different iterations. Work from the United States to western and eastern Europe, Latin America, and Japan will be discussed. Key artists of the movement will be explored within the context of the social and political issues of the era. Lectures, paired with museum visits, will familiarize educators with the artists and artwork, as well as provide them with strategies for incorporating the topic into their curriculum. Educators will also complete a hands-on studio activity that explores the themes and media incorporated in pop art and will serve as the basis for a hands-on project to be developed for students in their own classrooms.
