Pop Artist & Hands-On Collage Virtual Workshop
Modern Pop Art Experience

Presented by Michael Albert

Michael is back this year for 2021 with new ideas! New York based pop artist and author Michael Albert has brought his Modern Art Experience to over 1,000 libraries, schools, museums, and festivals in 35 states. His unique hands-on collage workshop is great for school age children, teens, adults, and can be done as a multi-generational event.

Michael will be presenting virtually for 2020 and give you a supply list & “how to create your own” art right from home! Not only a pop artist, Michael is the author of An Artist’s America (Henry Holt, 2008), which can be found in a number of Delaware libraries throughout the state.

Michael has been creating art since he was a student at New York University, where he studied business. His art has evolved from doodles, wax oil drawings, to the cubist mosaic cereal box collages he has become known for.
