Pollock Style Painting

At school, the kids are trying to recreate styles of famous painters on computer paint programs.  Jackson Pollock was the first painting style they learned about, so I decided to let them do some "real" painting: Pollock style.  First we watched old footage of him painting on YouTube.   Then they had a go:

According to the boy, Jackson Pollock was the best painter EVER.  I think he appreciates the technique.

He enjoyed this so much, he had to do another one.  And sister had to have a go too!

And "Pollock Painting" on a canvas bag with fabric paint.

An Artist.

Don't my walls look smart!

After this, they tried the painting app that mimics Pollock style painting.  I don't think that they were that impressed after having done the "real thing".
