Our Class author is Julia Donaldson.
Our Class Artist is Jackson Pollock.
He is famous for making splashy, drippy, messy paintings.
This photograph shows Jackson Pollock at work...just look at the mess he is making on the floor!
He dripped paint onto large canvases on the floor. This way of painting was called action painting because Pollock would move very quickly across the painting, dribbling the paint in long, wobbly lines. Sometimes he threw the paint onto the canvas – and some of his paintings still have footprints on them from when he stepped in the paint. Can you see any in the picture below?
Our Class Saint is Saint Francis of Assisi.
He is the patron Saint of animals.
