Art Concept: Abstract Expressionism in Art
Artist Examples: Jackson Pollock and Joan Mitchell
Art Project: After looking at works by Pollock, Frankenthaler, de Kooning, Kandinsky and other abstract expressionist artists, students will begin using pencil on paper to explore random lines and shapes in art using music as a backdrop. Students will then be able to create their own abstract expressionist painting. They can use the drip painting technique of Jackson Pollock technique or more floor painting in the style of Helen Frankenthaler. No paint throwing!

Students will be encouraged to think about and create a duality in their portraiture, whether through color or emotion, as a way to explore the yin and yang in nature.
