Writing Classroom as Factory
Sirc, Geoffrey
Composition Studies, v36 n1 p29-38 Spr 2008
In this article, the author traces the life of Andy Warhol, an American artist. Warhol, who became ill with a nervous condition, had spend most of his childhood in a bed littered with comic books, paper dolls, coloring books, a camera, cap gun, and his Charlie McCarthy doll. Warhol was the only Pop artist who was not a professionally, academically trained painter (Coplans 47). His skills were drawing and commercial design, with an especial interest in the technology of illustration. In 1963, Warhol moved his studio to a former hat factory on E. 47th St., where it would come to be known as "The Factory," a kind of clubhouse for the demimonde. Superstar Tally Brown described it as the greatest classroom ever.
