Jackson Pollock inspired art

To commentate his death on August 11, 1956 we decided to do some Jackson Pollock inspired art.

We started off looking at some paintings by him on google (this is a good one: and then we watched a youtube video of him painting (

The girls enjoyed dripping, splashing, flicking and swirling paint on to paper. It is interesting that at soon as E has a paint brush in her hands she has to paint with it, ending up with a different result than I was expecting!  We also did some marble painting which led to similar results! E enjoyed using this programme on the computer (

It would have been good to work on a larger scale outside because Pollock liked to use his whole body to paint but sadly it was raining! Plus it was rather messy and everyone ended up covered with paint!
