Create a Pop Portrait in Andy Warhol’s style
Andy Warhol’s NYC studio, The Factory, was a hip hangout and a hub for experimentation. We invite you to experiment, Warhol-style. Warhol, a leading figure in pop art, often started his portrait-making process with a Polaroid photo. Strike a pose and snap a photo with one of our instant cameras. Experiment, digitally, with pop art filters and colors then print a pop art portrait of yourself or a friend. Learn about the silkscreen process with IU Print Club and silkscreen a Warhol-style portrait. Note: Use of flash photography.
