Forget pretty pictures! Give children paper, paint and a place to create and just let them be spontaneous
American artist Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) is well known for his large-scale ‘drip’ paintings in which he dripped, poured or splattered paint onto canvases on the floor. He was a pioneer of Abstract Expressionism, belonging to the group of so-called ‘action painters’. Painting in this style liberates children and gives them freedom to just enjoy the painting experience, working spontaneously and without worrying about creating realistic images.
Splat attack: children will love painting in the style of Jackson Pollock!
