About Pop Art Mixed Media Portraits

Did you know that pop art is an art movement that uses everyday objects and makes them shine? Well we are going to create mixed media portraits using you as the star subject! Using a variety of materials like watercolor, paint and even printmaking you will create a mixed media portrait. Pop Art started in the mid-to-late 1950s. This art movement broke away from traditional art and used things from popular culture. The TV was a big contributor as it just became accessible to more people, making commercials and advertising a more common thing in the home.

Pop Art artists also used comic books and newspapers to create from things people saw every day. Artists also used everyday objects, like food and furniture, and displayed them in a new way! Artist Roy Lichtenstein created large, comic-book-like art. His art had tiny dots in it to resemble how the printer printed one dot at a time! Lichtenstein used bright, bold colors and often focused on the primary colors in his work.

This month, each artist will receive a mirror they can use to study themselves and create a self-portrait! Follow along with Artist Brandy and use the How to Draw a Face worksheet to learn some quick tips on drawing all kinds of faces. Enjoy painting geometric shapes with Outside the Box Creation watercolors and use bubble wrap to make prints on top of your self portrait.

My kids are super excited when they receive their monthly box. This month we were surprised how much stuff and well organized is the box! Keep surprising and entertaining our kids. Grazie!

– ANGELA B.

They had been fighting all day…because siblings. Literally, the minute our doorbell rang, the energy in the house turned to joy reminding us that our hearts sometimes just need a dose of creativity.  

– CHANDA

I’m using it with all 4 of my kids at once preschool – 5th grade. Everyone is able to work on the same project at their own ability level. All the best to Outside the Box Creation!

– HOMESCHOOL MOM

Gift for grandson for his birthday, he just received his first one and it was a hit!

- Grammy

My granddaughter who will turn 10 in September loves getting Outside the Box art kits. She is very creative. After she follows along with the kit, she then uses her own ideas and makes up her own creation. She also goes back to prior kits and uses previous supplies for other projects. Very nice kits.

- Barbara Cultice

My kids have loved the first subscription box. The book was fantastic and the artwork was fun. They have pulled it out multiple times to create art.

- Ashley Krimmel

I ordered the summer boxes for my 6 year old grandson. He loved them, and so did we. The art supplies that come with the box are top quality, and the addition of a book and a special theme make these boxes exceptional. 

- LISA R.

The customer service is prompt, kind, and helpful. I recommend this monthly subscription to anyone who wants to teach both art appreciation and hands on projects.

- HEATHER L.

My children ages 9, 7, and 5 have all enjoyed these art boxes. I enjoy the ease it is to create such an experience for them, and the stories that come in the boxes are always intriguing! Awesome job Outside the Box Creation!! 🙌🏽👏🏽
