Intro to Abstract - Jackson Pollock
Embrace the element of chance! Join us to drip, pour, and splatter paint creating your own, Jackson Pollock inspired, 8x8 painting on gallery wrapped canvas. We will work outside, weather permitting. Please wear old clothes that you don’t mind getting paint on. We will use various tools such as brushes, sticks, and even our hands to apply paint onto the canvas.
Pollock's compositions often feature a complex network of interwoven lines, drips, and splatters. These marks create a sense of depth, density, and layers within the painting. The canvas becomes a dynamic space where the eye can roam freely, discovering new details and connections with each viewing.

Matisse pioneered a technique known as the cut-out. He would use scissors to cut shapes out of painted paper and then arrange and glue them onto a larger surface. Matisse’s technique and composition together produced artworks that celebrated color, form, and expressive brushwork. His works exuded a sense of beauty, simplicity, and joy.
