If you think all artists sit still and paint for hours on end…you are mistaken. In this exciting camp, you will learn to use your body in motion as well as interesting objects to create active and energetic artwork. You'll observe the art of famous abstract expressionist artists, such as Jackson Pollock, and young emerging action painters, such as Jarrett Leone and Amy Shackleton. Then, you'll be off to the races to create your own action paintings. You will be flinging, dripping, pouring, and splattering in ways you've never previously considered. We'll use items such as squirt bottles, tennis shoe bottoms and tire tracks to create interesting visual patterns and completed works of art worthy of hanging in your personal modern art museum.
