Pop Art program for children

The town’s youth will have the opportunity to get a close-up of Pop Art next month as the Perrot Memorial Library welcomes families to join Alice Scovell Coleman, a lecturer with the Learning to Look program, for a fun hour of studying and making art on Feb. 2.

The program will feature an interactive lesson about Pop Art, featuring the works of Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Claes Oldenburg. After the lesson, children will be invited to create a Pop Art project of their own. The event takes place, Saturday, Feb. 2 at 2 p.m., and coincides with the “Second Annual Take Your Child to the Library Day.”

Learning to Look, an art history and appreciation program for students from kindergarten through high school, was created by Greenwich residents Diane Darst and Sue Ann Williamson. It has been taught by Learning to Look-trained teachers to more than 75,000 students at nearly 100 schools in the tri-state area alone. The program introduces children to the process of looking at art by analyzing the “Elements of Art” through the Socratic Method and creative activities.
