Updated: Apr 5, 2020

Artists 8+ Can Make This Cool Art!

About the Artist: Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol is one of the most popular Pop Artists that you'll learn about with Art Classes for Kids. Andy Warhol was well known for taking things from popular culture and using them as inspiration in his artwork! You'll see in Andy Warhol's artwork there's a lot of repetition and interesting use of contrasting colors. Years after the release of the Andy Warhol artwork, Campbell's Soup actually made some limited-edition inspired soup cans! If you want to learn more about this artwork, you can check out MoMA Learning for more information.
