The Workshop

Let’s go retro and back to the days of Andy Warhol and ‘The Factory’ in New York where he created some of the most fantastic, ground breaking artworks of the ’60s. Referred to hereafter as ‘POP ART’. It was an amazing era of celebrity, colour, breaking boundaries and getting right out there in the name of spontaneity and liberation !

Cat will take you (step by step) through your paces and show you how to create your own ‘POP ART’ masterpiece in her own very early signature style through which she first became well known in South Australia. (Enjoy scrolling through some of Cat’s pop art style paintings on this page.)

POP ART – The style:
Think:- Campbell’s Soup tins, paintings of Marilyn Monroe, Velvet Underground and New York USA.  Think:- Rock Stars / Artists / Lou Reed and David Bowie.  It was a time of mind bending boundary pushing in all areas of The Arts, Theatre, Music and Society at large !

POP ART – The era – 1960s:
It was a time of an extreme Artistic revolution where Andy Warhol and his contemporaries broke free of society’s norms and rewired the world’s thinking, through the medium of Art.  Bowie, Mercury, Jagger, Reed and many others hung at Warhol’s famous New York Studio known as ‘The Factory’ where he created some of the most ‘out there’ ground breaking artworks of the 60’s – Referred to for ever more as ‘POP ART’.

It was an amazing era of celebrity, colour, breaking boundaries and getting right ‘out there’ in the name of liberty and self expression.

Drugs played rather a big part too, but you don’t have to take them during the workshop !
