3rd Grade "Action Jackson"

3rd grade artists are learning about the Abstract Action Paintings of the artist Jackson Pollock! We created our own "action" paintings by blowing paint with straws (instead of throwing paint around our classroom like Jackson did). We also learned a bit about Jackson's life and work and reviewed rainbow order in our art.

On the back of our artwork, we add our "cheat sheet" or Art Critique where we can go to help us explain to our parents what we were learning about. It is also a great summative evaluation of our learning:

Here are a couple of books we read with some classes about the life and work of Action Jackson:

We also watched this youtube clip about Jackson while coloring:
