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.
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".
