Claes Oldenburg

5th graders have been learning about Pop Art this semester. We first started with Andy Warhol and have now moved on to Claes Oldenburg.

After sketching items and foods we use in every day life, we practiced our clay techniques and made sculptures out of our every day objects.

We began by watching a short video of Oldenburg’s giant BLT sandwich and discussing how the scale and media changed the purpose of the object. We learned from Warhol that Pop Art is about changing everyday objects into something new.
