Today Grandma came for art class and the kids make Jackson Pollock splatter paintings. They were tired from an afternoon at the beach (IN the water on November 4th!), but they perked right up for this art project. It was a tremendous hit.
Here's everybody getting started with the brushes and the paint outside on the driveway. We were lucky that it wasn't too cold.
And then the kids got to work.
Jackson Pollock must have been quite a child at heart, because these kids took to this project like pigs to the mud bath. And the results weren't too far off the mark. All three kids spent about an hour channeling our friend Jackson.
When all was said and done, it was hard to tell the artist from the art.
