Pollock's Splatter Paintings

We talked about Jackson Pollock's painting techniques yesterday. The kids were very excited to make their own splatter paintings!
Because I knew this would be a messy project, we did it on a swimming day again. That way the kids could rinse off in the pool! I forgot to take my camera outside with us, but I'm sure you can figure out how this was done. The kids used paintbrushes to flick paint onto their paper. (I watered down the paint a bit so it would work better.) They also used craft sticks to drip paint across the paper. Here's how they turned out:

They turned out great -- even if there were a few grass clippings thrown in!
