Third grade artists have been creating artwork inspired by two artists – George Rodrigue and “Action Jackson” Pollock.
First they drew dogs in the style of well-known Louisiana “Blue Dog” artist, George Rodrigue.
Next they did some spatter paintings like abstract artist Jackson Pollock. Getting messy and printing with paint drippy string is an all time favorite for third grade – it never gets old!
We put everything together and painted a black swirly frame. Ooh-la-la, beautiful art is made when George meets Jackson!
