Week 8: Abstract-Expressionism · July 20-24
1943-1965, New York
This week is all about creating art to express feelings and thoughts. Abstract Expressionism, also called “action painting,” allowed artists to place paint on their canvases in any way they wanted.
Campers will create works of art that capture emotions, while learning about the design and composition absent from representational images. How will you create with only feeling and color? Artists: Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Helen Frankenthaler, Willem de Kooning, Robert Motherwell, Frank Stella.
