Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5–8—Raimondo introduces six prominent Pop artists—Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, Claes Oldenburg, and George Segal. First she describes each man's creative technique, and then she invites readers to observe one of their well-known works by asking questions such as, "How do you think he used his brush?" Finally, she suggests projects that imitate the artists' methods. Most of the required materials can be found around the house or are readily available at a craft store, and written instructions for each project are easy to follow. The text is printed in a variety of fonts on brightly colored pages. Frequent words in bold and contrasting polygon text boxes might be distracting to some readers. Most of the illustrations are color photographs of art projects made by children and the author rather than pictures of the artists' works. Biographical information is limited to a paragraph about each artist on the final spread; as a result, this book doesn't stand alone as an introduction to the period, but is a good companion to more extensive overviews such as Anne Fitzpatrick's Late Modernism (Creative Education, 2005).—Donna Cardon, Provo City Library, UT

I make it a point to collect Joyce Raimondo's books. Make it Pop like her previous books in the Art Explorers series have proved to be an excellent tool in art education. I use it in my college courses for my students studying to be teachers. It provides clear examples of appropriate language and art technique for inspiring conversations and art making in this case about Pop Art. For my college students new to providing art lessons with their students it is a valuable resource.

Ages 5-12 and parents and teachers will appreciate this unusual focus: a collection of art activities for this age group that provides a visual focus on the basic elements of Pop Art. Six artists plus the author provide a survey of Pop Art elements and explore the stories behind major art works - then moves beyond to encourage kids to create their own Pop Art. Bright pages of color examples and a question/answer format promises learning and fun.

Most people tend to think that pop culture is not appropriate for kids. But I think it is necessary for kids to have an adequate eye of appreciation toward secular culture because they should be able to learn to pertinently enjoy creative art works. If you have negative thoughts about pop culture, please read this book.

This book is packed with great and doable art projects complete with examples. There is good information about a variety of POP artists and the pictures of finished art projects are excellent. A very good book choice for teachers and parents alike; text and projects are very child-friendly but keep kids stretching artistically. We're using this book in our interactive studio that is art-activity heavy so the art projects listed are perfect take-home ideas for parents.

I teach middle school and am always finding new ways to teach art that I don't necessarily like myself. I am not a fan of Pop Art, but it's a great way to get the students involved and excited about art. Everyone can do Pop Art, and this book is the perfect addition to my curriculum, because it gives a good background, examples and is nice on the eyes. Any book in this series I highly recommend. The projects are fun, engaging and kids from elementary to a beginning high school art class can do it!
