Creative art ideas will make kids pop to it!

The Art Explorers series offers a new approach to art, encouraging kids to interpret what they see in famous artworks, then try the techniques themselves. Make It Pop!: Activities and Adventures in Pop Art, the fourth book in the series, draws children into the lively, bold world of pop art by highlighting the work of six famous artists. From witty commentary on our culture by Warhol, Lichtenstein, and Johns, to one of Rauschenberg’s inspired combines, to soft sculpture by Oldenburg and a scene by Segal, each artist is represented by a famous artwork, paired with questions to get kids thinking about what they see. Easy-to-follow activities provide hands-on experience with the artist's techniques, subject, and media, each illustrated with examples by real kids. Packed with great art and great ideas, Make It Pop! lets kids understand art--and become artists themselves.

• Interactive introduction to six famous artists: Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Claes Oldenburg, and George Segal

• Hands-on approach to understanding great art

• School budget cuts? Parents and teachers need Art Explorers—ideal for homeschoolers, too!
