Project Description

Students will have the time of their life exploring the world of abstract art as they literally throw paint, which is turned into take-home keepsakes.

This participatory art event allows students to enjoy creating work in a collaborative environment. This type of process making allows students to create without preconceived notions. This process begins the conversation of “what is art?”

Final Product
Students will throw paint on two pieces of canvas and each student and teacher will receive a “flag” or portion of each collaborative work.

Why I teach:

“I teach because I love art. I want others to have the positive experience that painting and drawing allows. The subjectivity of art allows for success in every individual. I like that art allows success for everyone.” –MV Moran
