  1. Hi Bella. Thank you I enjoyed making this abstract art particularly the first one. I’m still not sure why the web site put someone else’s signature on it. Mrs Rutherford thought it very funny!

    Yes we can have a unit on still life. Are there any artists still life work that you admire?

  2. I REALLLLY love all the art links Mrs Boyhan! The Jackson Pollock abstract was so addictive and you feel so clever when you work out the many many applications you can do! ANd I love the Paris header image. Where did that come from?

  3. I really enjoyed the ‘Absract Art’ game! It was a good way to learn art and use it in a creative way. I could play it all day!

    • Mmm it is addictive isn’t it Brydie. I still don’t know why it puts someone else’s signature on my art though. Does this happen to anyone else?

  4. Things I Know About Jackson Pollock:

    *Jackson started studying painting in 1929 at the Art Students’ League in New York

    *He used sticks, trowels, or knifes to get that drip or splash effect

    *From 1938-1942, Jackson worked for the Federal Art Project

  5. Hi 5/6LT,

    As you know we have all been working on abstract art. from our point of view abstrect art is like a part of imagination and it can be a painting or a sculpture.
