Art students began this project by choosing an image of their favorite candy. The image was cropped to create an interesting composition. Using the technique of scale and proportion students drew their images and painted them using Gouache paint (an opaque paint that is a cross between watercolor and acrylic, known for its saturated brilliant color).
Pop Art is a style of art based on simple bold images of everyday items, such as soup cans painted in bright colors. Pop artists create pictures of consumer product labels and packaging, photos of celebrities, comic strips, and animals.
