Olivia!!

This is one of my favorite books. I love that it has real artists featured in the book.

Jackson Pollock is one of them.

We made "Jackson Pollock" type paintings...

First we taped our paper into the box lids:

Then we dropped marbles into paint and then onto our paper:

And just moved the box and let the marbles roll:


They loved painting this way!

What a fun idea! I bet your kids loved doing that.

that is such a rad idea. I think I want to try that out with my kids, only, we will be more authentic and incorporate some candy cigarettes while working on the art. ;-)
