Paint Splats in an Art Room Sink

Six years ago when I came to the school I am now, there were dried out paints in containers that had been moved to our school.  I soaked them to reuse the containers.  And when the water went down the drain, this is what was left.  I taped newspaper over the sink and made a little sign.  DO NOT USE SINK.   I didn’t tell them why,  The next day I brought in my camera, removed  the newspaper and photographed the paint splats in the sink.  It was really interesting to me.  So this is another from the archives. Abstract expressionism.

  1. Re-purposing something old for something new.
    Did you have the kids watch you take the photo, and/or tell them what you were doing? Experiential learning, to be certain.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
