Kindergarten Students Emulate Jackson Pollock Art

"Jackson Pollock was an influential American painter, and the leading force behind the abstract expressionist movement in the art world. Pollock's greatness lies in developing one of the most radical abstract styles in the history of modern art, detaching line from color, redefining the categories of drawing and painting, and finding new means to describe pictorial space."

Using our Sphero devices to code their movements, Mrs. Villarreal, our Visual Arts teacher, guided our students to create art pieces that emulate Pollock's works. Follow this post to see the finished artwork and videos!
