2nd grade artists looked at the artwork of Jackson Pollock. We reviewed how he painted--by splattering, flinging and dripping paint onto his canvas. There are no recognizable objects in his paintings, making them abstract. Then we looked at realistic wintery landscapes created by various artists. We then created a slightly abstract wintery landscape painting using only black and white tempera paint. Our abstract trees were created by blowing the paint around our paper using straws in a Jackson Pollock-esque way of action painting.
