We kick off the lesson we watched a short TEDed Video about Abstract Expressionism (focused on Pollock mostly). We reviewed TINTS & SHADES. I allowed the students to select one color to go with the emotion they were trying to convey to go with the black & white. At the end of class I allowed them to select one metallic color to add. I think I may allow them to use oil pastels and possibly one more color of paint to finish it off. They are really enjoying this project/process so far!
