Explore the colorful, crazy world of American artist Jackson Pollock. Known as "Action Jackson" because of the movement and emotion he expressed in his paintings, Pollock didn't paint like a normal artist- he dribbled and splattered paint to make his large murals. Once you see his famous modern art, try his style out for yourself!
Children who would like to try making art like Jackson Pollock should gather some of the following supplies before the program – no need to purchase any, just use whatever you have at home:
White, unlined paper, the bigger the better
Paints, food coloring, colored markers
Spoon, sieve, hand egg beater, toothbrush, and any other equipment that can be used with paint to dribble or splatter
Plastic tablecloth or other protection for table
