Teacher Program: Roy Lichtenstein is best known for his crisp, bright paintings based on images appropriated from comic books, yet his career spans more than four decades during which he explored a wide range of subjects, media, and stylistic approaches.  This workshop begins with a tour of the exhibition Roy Lichtenstein: A Retrospective followed by a visit to the modern and contemporary art galleries to broaden the discussion of the influence of popular and consumer culture in art of the 20th century and beyond. The afternoon features collaborative work in the studio where participants will explore strategies and projects for using art and popular culture to build meaningful connections between school curricula and students’ personal lives. This workshop is appropriate for all grades and subject areas.

This workshop has reached capacity and is now closed.
