Art One - Watch the Color Video

Click the link below to watch the video.  It is a GREAT (and very, very interesting - I promise) video about color and culture.
What do you think?  What comment in the video stood out to you?  Do not repeat comments, and say something that lets me know that you really watched the video.


Art Two - Non-Objective Painting

Jackson Pollock

“It’s all a big game of construction, some with a brush, some with a shovel, some choose a pen.”   “The method of painting is the natural growth out of a need. I want to express my feelings rather than illustrate them.”  “Every good painter paints what he is.”
