Modern art painting Jackson Pollock style @WBCL

We discussed doing this project in the spring and I tried it out at summer art camp with great success. The project is divided into 2 parts: first the painters draw and paint geometric objects with bright colors on a "canvas" then they use thinned paints to dribble and spatter the whole piece and complete the project. We went outside for the second half as it is so messy. Everyone had to leave their shoes and cover up to keep paint from spattering all over their clothes. What a fun time this was. The kids learned a little art history and made a modern art painting circa 1960.
