Paint Like Jackson Pollock!
In the second half of the twentieth century, Jackson Pollock and fellow modernist painters revolutionized our idea of what a painting could be. On giant canvases, Pollock experimented with “random” drops and splatters of paint and other materials.
In other words, he built a career on art and colour expression that any preschooler would know a thing or two about. Pollock’s work offers wonderful inspiration for young artists exploring the wild and exciting world of form and colour. The following activity offers academic benefits as well: practise with painting builds hand-eye and visual coordination skills (fine motor skills) that kids need in order to tackle the complex job of writing.
