Overview

Think you know Pop Art? Think again

Pop Art changed the world – influencing fields as diverse as graphic design, philosophy, music, and advertising. But how did Pop Art really begin? And what do we know about its most famous artists?

Explore the life and work of Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein

Learning alongside top educators and curators from the internationally renowned Centre Pompidou, you’ll examine the roots of a movement that went on to shake modern culture – bringing disposable ‘low’ aesthetics into the realm of ‘high’ art.

You’ll get a panoramic view of Pop Art, from its unexpected origins to the lives of its most famous figureheads, including Warhol and Lichtenstein.

See why Pop Art matters

Using videos to learn – and fun quizzes to test your knowledge – you’ll stimulate your creativity and expand your knowledge of this influential period in art history.

Closely studying two works of Pop Art from the Centre Pompidou’s own extensive collection, you’ll come away able to look at and comment on works of art – and Pop Art itself – in a whole new way.

This course is designed to be open to anyone curious, playful, and eager to learn more about Pop Art.
