July 8: Action Jackson

Hello! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend!
This Wednesday, we will start up again with a bang. Or maybe I should say with a splatter! We will be taking a look at the work of Jackson Pollock, the American artist who perfected the messy look! His painting technique was called "Action Painting" because he was interested in seeing what kinds of paintings he could create by moving around a lot while splashing paint on the canvas. The finished products were interesting and unique, and something I think children will really have fun with! Check it out:

Whoa! See what I mean?! A kid's dream! So let's get messy with Jackson Pollock Wednesday, July 8 at 10:30 am at the Clinton District Public Library. Remember to wear clothes you don't mind getting messy...
