Paint Like Pollock: Art Project for Grades K-2 | Deep Space Sparkle. As much as I love creating a big mess with paint, I wasn’t inspired to create a Jackson Paint Like Pollock art project until I saw this post. I knew the technique of dipping yarn into tubs of paint would be a huge hit with my first graders. And it was. Plus, I could finally read Action Jackson! If you don’t have this book, it’s a must-read about Jackson’s painting process, not to mention a perfect read for the art room, which I define as the right amount of text to illustration ratio. To start: Place 18″ x 24″ sheets of construction paper on the tables for placemats.Mix 3-4 colors of tempera paint into tubs and place on the table. How to Paint Like Pollock: Children are a bit hesitant at first but I remind them of Jackson’s fearlessness with paint.

Through the manipulation of paintings spanning hundreds of years and numerous styles of art, children are free to explore the elements that go into a painting. In the classical and impressionist designs, they are free to explore and modify the objects of the paintings, from the sky and the background, through the middle and the foreground, adjusting for perspective and adding and subtracting characters and scenery at will. Some of the characters in the paintings can be animated for an extra laugh. In the strongest part of the app, that of the more modern art styles, the artist can explore color and layering paints, producing works that are similar in style to the famous work but ultimately entirely original. –Parents' Choice Foundation, 2015.

Escher Introduction Self Portrait, 1948 Maurits Cornelis Escher created unique and fascinating works of art that explore and exhibit a wide range of mathematical ideas. He was born in Leeuwarden, Holland in 1898, and when he was in school his family planned for him to follow his father’s career of architecture. His work went almost unnoticed until the 1950’s, but by 1956 he had given his first important exhibition, was written up in Time magazine, and acquired a world-wide reputation.

His work eventually appeared not only in printed form, but as commissioned or imitative sculptures on public buildings, as decorations on everything from neckties to mousepads, and in software written to automate the reproduction and manipulation of tesselations.

Edit Article Two Methods:CritiquingProviding an artistic summaryCommunity Q&A An art critique is an evaluation of a work of art.
