Jackson Pollack Earth ArtSaturday, April 21, 2012
To celebrate Earth Day, we made Jackson Pollack inspired art. We looked at several of Pollack's paintings and discussed them. We discussed how Pollack loved to throw himself (literally and figuratively) into his work. The kids got REALLY excited because they thought I was going to let them throw paint! Well, they had a momentary let down when they realized that wasn't going to happen! We made these super cute earth art by putting white circles in a box lid, put several drops of blue and green paint on the circle, add in a few marbles, and roll them around. Presto! Pollack inspired art without the mess!
