UW-Green Bay Youth Camps

Pop Art Painting

In the mid 1950s, a new wave of art moved through the United States and Britain. The bright colors and pop subject matter reflected a change in artistic direction and in mass culture. Using artworks created by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns, and contemporary Takashi Murakami as examples, campers will make paintings that reflect both their own personal identities and interests, as well as make commentary on the world around them. This class will allow campers to learn the basics of painting or refine their talents if they have been painting for some time. We will mix new challenges with fun!

Resident campers check-in on Sunday, June 17th. Commuter campers check-in on Monday, June 18th.


2019 dates coming soon.

For campers entering grades 6-9

Instructor: Ranita Haanen

Ranita Haanen is a UW-Green Bay graduate, with a double major in fine arts and graphic design. Her focus at the university was in painting and drawing, supplemented with a number of ceramic courses. In addition she attended Haystack Mountain School of Crafts taking an extensive encaustic painting course and SRISA international school of art based in Florence, Italy. Much of her work deals with making lists of mundane objects, and the beauty in ordinary day to day life. She is excited to be working with students this summer to help them find their unique creative voice and advance their painting skills.
