This art lesson was messy but Sawyer's classmates LOVED it! They like getting messy, even the kids that were complaining about the possibility of their Nikes getting paint on them came around in the end. If you don't like your shoes to get dirty, then don't wear them to school! End rant. Ok, this project was fun to research and I learned so much about Jackson Pollock's life. Check it out on Classic Play.
