Third Grade artists began learning about “Action Jackson” Pollock this week. We read Action Jackson by Greenberg and Jordan, and looked at several reproductions of Pollock’s action paintings. Everyone was excited and energized by Pollock’s abstract expressionist paintings!
So we got busy with our Action Jackson project by creating a textured background with warm color crayons. This was a great review of warm colors as third graders sorted out the pink, orange, yellow, and red crayons for their texture rubbings. Next week…string printing on the textured background!
