Abstract Expressionist Sculptures 

Seventh grade students learned about the Abstract Expressionist movement from the mid-20th century and used Jackson Pollock's gestural style as inspiration in the creation of these non-representational sculptures.  Students used wire and a block of wood to design a unique and interesting abstract form.  After solidifying their design, they used layers of newspaper dipped in paper mache to create flat planes of space, building a sculpture in the round.  Once their sculptures were dry, each student painted several base colors on their sculpture and followed up with a splattering, gestural layer of colors.
