Jackson Pollock was a famous artist known for drip painting. Drip painting is a form of abstract art, where paint is dripped or poured onto a canvas. This is exactly what art teacher, Paige Reesor, and her art students did.
Reesor and her students were inspired by Jackson Pollock to do their own drip painting. The finish product turned out to be 5 feet by 7 feet. They used house paint, sticks, kitchen utensils and brushes on the canvas to get the drip paint effect.
Reesor said she wanted her students to learn about this type of art and was pleased with the final product she and her students put together.
“It became a wonderful piece of art to hang up in the classroom,” said Reesor.
The whole class had a great time doing this project.
“It is so much fun and was a great success,” said eighth grade student McKinley Kelley.
