Pollack Painting

So we’re discussing the wonderful letter P these days. Obviously painting comes to mind and given that cleanliness isn’t our main objective, the painting style of Jackson Pollack also comes to mind. We watched a cool video of him from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art….http://www.sfmoma.org/explore/multimedia/videos/249 and then proceeded outside, because, well, you’ll see why:)

It’s one of the most fun painting activities you can do with your kiddos. What 4, 5, and 42 year olds don’t like to splatter paint? The best part I think? No one has to worry about their painting skills and whether they make a better splatter than their friend. Free-for-all style is a great self-esteem and confidence booster.

Note to teachers though: After having done this for several years, I recommend you have them take their shoes off. Painted feet are much cuter for parents than painted Nikes. And here’s our little video. I think Pollack would be proud.
