Jackson Pollock for kids

Here’s the next to the last “Art on Monday” activity from my A STEM Summer plans. (When life gets less crazy I’ll go back and update the rest, so they will be all ready to go for people next June.)

Today’s activity from Irene Luxbacher’s book 123 I Can Paint, was definitely Jackson Pollock inspired. Thankfully the weather cooperated and we could do this project outside. First we taped off sections of our paper, and then we splattered away. The vocabulary word of the day was “technique”.

Things got really messy! It’s been a long time since I have had to physically carry my son Bruce(7) up to the bath, but I did not want to get paint on my white carpet.  Jenna(3) even had paint in her hair!

But all of that mess was worth it, because we had so much fun.

Normally I share who painted each piece, but this time I’ll let you guess!
