I love art. I love the history and the reasoning behind it. I have a degree in Art History and if life had happened differently my youthful dreams of working in a gallery may have become a reality. However, that is in the past and in my present reality I can try to encourage my children to have an understanding and perhaps a passion for it.
Today we created our own Jackson Pollock pieces.
The boys loved having no real direction other than create.
I told them to use the colors that they enjoyed and work in their painting.
Color combing happened quickly
And a true artist does not care about his “look” while working.
After awhile their work was finished and they are now ready to act ambivalent towards their peers. True artists in the making.
Another one crossed off the Summer bucket list.
