18th September 2020: Jackson Pollock - Year 2 Art
This week Year 2 learnt about creating shades, by adding black to their paint. They learnt about abstract artist Jackson Pollock who invented the ‘drip painting’ method using different shades of colours. He used these dark shades to represent his feelings and emotions. Can you guess how he might have been feeling when he created his work? Year 2 discussed which style they preferred, tints or shades and we all agreed we preferred working with bright and vibrant colours as they make us think of happy and warm times. Although we preferred the light colours we LOVED the ‘drip painting’ method, it was very fun!
