How to Make Your Photos Pop!


As you know, the theme of this month’s Smart Art Box is the wonderful art movement known as Pop! It took the art world by storm in the 1950s and 1960s, in its celebration of popular culture. One of the ways that pop artists such as Andy Warhol and Jasper Johns rethought the everyday things around them was by using the tool of repetition in their paintings and photographs.
