Day 116..

Place a sheet of paper on top of a material that you’re allowed to get messy (like some old newspaper or a piece of cardboard). Dip a paintbrush into some watered-down paint, hold the brush over the paper with one hand and tap it with the other to create splatter and drips on the paper. Do this three times with a different color paint each time. This is called “action painting.” American artist Jackson Pollock painted in this way.


When you are done and the paint has dried, cut out a smaller square shape and glue it into an empty page in your My Year of Art sketchbook.
