Your preschooler has been granted V.I.P. access! Each Doodlebugs virtual art class features a VERY INVENTIVE PAINTER: a well-known artist whose creative ingenuity changed the world. 

Jackson Pollock’s birthday gives us the perfect opportunity to get really messy and create an abstract expressionist painting.

Heavy paper or cardstock, paint (Miss Erin will be using tempera), several small containers to hold different paint colors (Miss Erin will be using Dixie cups), water cup, paper towels or rags for cleaning, a cardboard box just big enough to hold your paper so it’s flat on the bottom, marbles (or similar), and a paintbrush. Optional: masking tape (or similar low-tack tape), a clothespin (the springy kind), a few pieces of yarn/string/ribbon, a pipette (eyedropper)
