Abstract Art

We have started learning about abstract art in Grade 5/6. We started by looking at Jackson Pollock. Next term we will learn about the artist Kadinsky that Mrs Boyhan learnt about from Mr Williams last year.

Here is our digital splah art inspired by Jackson Pollock. Grade 5/6 what do you know about abstract art so far?

  1. I really enjoyed doing the splash art. They all looked really good. I think we all did really well on the paintings. We should make more types of paintings like splash art this year.

  6. Splash art is when you flick you paint brush. It is part of a group called abstract art.Abstract art is when it does not look like anything.it was invented by Jackson polick.

  7. We had so much fun doing our splash art. We now now that an abstract artist is someone who’s paintings or drawings don’t represente any particular thing in the real world. We used a website on the computer that creates splash art with the mouse.

  8. Hi there.
    I loved seeing and reading about your abstract art. My 3/4 class has also worked on abstract art this year when we investigated Sonia de Laurney. We posted about it on our blog too. Here is the link if you would like to check it out:
    Recently I was in the city and I also noticed some modern art when I was walking along by the Yarra at Crown and Southbank. This modern art was a series of statues, and there is a photo of one of them on our blog under ‘holiday news’.
    Have you done any new pieces of abstract art since your post?
    Keep sharing your great work!

      • Hi Bronte and Ally.
        The latest artwork in 3/4 MK has been making newspaper fashions. There are some photos on our blog on the home page if you scroll down. The students absolutely LOVED doing this and we are thinking we might have to do something similar for Cup Day! Are you going to share any of your concentric circles on your blog – I would like to have a peek too!

    • Just lately we have done a Concentric Circles inspired by Kandinsky. Also we have studied lots of art like Pop art by Andy Warhol and Pollack’s splash art (above).

    • Hi Mary,

      Our class has been doing abstract art since the start of the year. We did Kadinsky’s Concentric circls and Pollock’s Splash art. In our class we really enjoy doing abstract art. My favourite is the splash art that we did. All of our ideas were different. We also did the Kadinsky’s concentric circles after we posted this. What kind of art are you doing now?

      • Hi Maddison.
        We are currently making making designer fashion outfits from newspaper! The students have been so clever in what they have been able to come up with and have really enjoyed doing it. We have our Art Show coming up next week and even I have contributed to a small part of our class canvas where each us did a painting in the style of our favourite artist studied this year. It actually looks fantastic. Look forward to seeing what you do next!

  9. Hi 56/LA,
    We really enjoyed doing abstract art. Abstract art does not representthe anything particuar in the real world and is an insperation all around the world.

    • Hi Marc.
      My favourite artist I think would be Monet because I love the way he is able to use colours. I remember going to an exhibition of his art many years ago and really enjoying it. I am very lucky that I share my class with another teacher who LOVES art, just like Mrs Boyhan, so my students get to create all sorts of amazing artworks and I get to enjoy them! Keep up your great work!
