It is quiz time! Are you ready? Do you know who Jackson Pollock is? Well, we can be really thankful for his artistic genius because he is the reason we get the throw paint with our besties every weekend!
Get ready to get messy on Friday's of winter camp because we are going to have fun and learn about the most famous of famous paint throwers - Jackson Pollock! Otherwise know as Action Jackson! Watch the video below for a sneak peek!
Hopefully you answered yes to all these questions in the video!
How to prepare for this wild art adventure...
#1 - Do not wear anything nice! I repeat, do not wear anything nice! No ball gowns, no tuxedos, no anything nice! Even your shoes will be messy! We admit splatter shoes do look kind of cool but your grown up might not think so.... wear old shoes!
#2 - Prepare yourself - it will be messy. I repeat, it will be messy! You will get paint on you but it is NO BIG DEAL! This is the day you are allowed to get paint on you, have fun and be messy.
Ok, we are all so excited let's ramp things up even more and throw in a contest here!
