Fourth grade artists reviewed the artist that they learned about last year, Jackson Pollock. We talked about how his art is abstract and is more about the action of painting than the representation of what is painted. We used his style of painting to be the background for our Edgar Degas figure drawing project.
First, we had fun dripping paint onto our papers and then blowing through a straw to push and mix the paint around on our papers.
We also reviewed warm and cool color schemes by painting one half of the paper with each color group.
We carefully cut out our figure drawing silhouettes and glued them to our warm/cool papers.
