Art At Your Fingertips for PMP Students (Joyous Abandon)

March 19, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Art At Your Fingertips (AAYF) is the Palos Verdes Art Center’s visual arts outreach program which brings standards-based education to local schools and aims to help participants feel comfortable using art as a means of expression.  Five AAYF projects will be interspersed through out the 2014 – 2015 school year. Each project will be completed in a single session.

Using the pouring techniques made famous by American Color Field painter Helen Frankenthaler, students will work individually, as well as in groups, to create a truly original piece of abstract art. By allowing diluted paint to flow freely before soaking into the canvas, students will learn to paint with joyous abandon.

Parents: this is a messy project, so please encourage your student to wear “slop” clothes (i.e., clothing that can get dirty) to school on this day.
