We started the year exploring color and movement inspired by the great artists Morris Louis, Helen Frankenthaler, and Jackson Pollock.
|Students used primary color markers and spray bottles of water to achieve a blurred color mixing effect like Morris Louis.|
|Students used liquid watercolors and pipettes to pour and squeeze paint like Helen Frankenthaler.|
|Condiment bottles full of tempera paint enabled students to "action paint" by moving their arms and creating twisting lines like Jackson Pollock.|
Note: One of my favorite sites full of art experiences for young children is So Says Sarah. If you are a teacher or parent of young artists, you should check it out!
