Playing catch up on my blog post (clearly).

Teaching the kids at the school about art and famous artist. After a mild set back with my squirt gun art project - I turned the lesson plan into a class on "action art" and splatter paint. Which was all Jackson Pollock.  

The kids faces were PRICELESS when I first showed them some of Pollock's work! "That's a big mess!" one said. (I bet that's not the first time someone had said that about Pollock's art either). But applying his techniques to their own canvases, I think they started to like it more and more!
