Throwin’ A Little Paint!

Well, not really throwing the paint.  Third graders have been exploring the action paintings of “Action Jackson” Pollock.  They re-created his splatter style of painting using yarn dipped in paint.

This is one of the few projects that I repeat every year – the students are so excited to create this way, and I never get tired of seeing the results!  Here’s one we did a couple of years ago: Action Jackson Portraits

This year we had some fun with our string prints by weaving the paintings after they were dry, and adding a string printed heart.

We discovered that it was easier to weave on the non-painted side of our work – easier to see our weaving pattern!

Learning Goals:

I can tell two facts about artist Jackson Pollock; I can identify non-objective art; I can create a quality finished art work using printing and weaving techniques.
