Abstract Expressionism for Kids
Children will learn about different artist’s abstract methods by hearing about the artist and how the artist’s method came to be. Children will then be able to select colors of their own choosing and utilize the method shown. For the first class, children will learn the artistic style of Jackson Pollock, an abstract expressionist, which is known as “throwing paint”. In this class, children will choose a few colors and put each color into cans or cups. Then, they will throw each color, one at a time, onto the fabric, canvas or other materials chosen for the class. The children will be able to see how the colors they chose blend together. Learning about different artists and their methods will enable the children to gain knowledge about the art world. We may even see some aspiring artists in the class.
