Action Painting



We read a book about Jackson Pollock called "Action Jackson". The book taught us that Pollock used his whole body when he painted. " He swoops and leaps like a dancer, paint trailing from a brush that doesn't touch the canvas."


We invited the children to paint like Jackson Pollock and with much energy and excitement they did just that,


In the end everyone was covered with paint and our paper was beautiful with lines, splotches, drips and splatters.


One of our friends said " it sounds like rain."




When we felt done we took a piece of our painting away to dry and then let the children ride the bikes across the paper making tire trails curving and looping along the large butcher block paper. 
What a super fun day!



We cut our giant painting in half and hung them in our studio.
