Summer Campers At The Farmingnton Valley Arts Center Create Jackson Pollock Inspired Abstract Paintings

"Action Painting" At Farmington Valley Arts Center's Summer Camp 

Campers attending the "Summer Arts Adventure For Kids Program" at The Farmington Valley Arts Center  (FVAC) in Avon, CT have created some rather amazing Jackson Pollock inspired abstract paintings. Pollock, was a major influence in the abstract expressionist movement.  In the late 1940s, Pollock developed the "drip and splash" style of applying paint.  Many of his pieces were set on the floor or on a wall where he used unconventional objects instead of paint brushes to drip paint and create what is known as "action paintings" .
