Modern Artapalooza 2009 is in session. On Monday, we were able to go outside and collaborate making our own action painting. We worked in the style of Jackson Pollock's drip paintings and dripped, flung and splattered paint all over the canvas. Before going outside we discussed the importance of Jackson Pollock on Modern Art, and how his way of working was revolutionary.
After letting the painting dry overnight, we continued collaborating on Tuesday. Students were challenged to work together to create one cohesive piece and had to constantly communicate and discuss with each other in order to arrive at a stopping point they all agreed with. (We have agreed we will add more blue on Wednesday).
