Cool snow idea


We had an open house at our school and I got talking to a local public school art teacher . We compared lessons and one thing she wanted to do on the next snow day was a Jackson Pollock in the snow. So tomorrow if the snow hasn’t melted I’m going to have my 6th grade do this project.

1. Watch video: Any you have or  used

2. Set up area:

3. let them splatter I tell them to have some idea of what motion they want to create. BE EXPRESSIVE!

Power point from the National Gallery

Worksheet from this website

“Getting to Know the World’s Greatest Artists”
Multiple Choice Quiz and Response Sheet

She has great worksheets for these books.
