Painting Non-Objective Abstraction High School Art

Highschoolart is back. Our school scanner wasn't working, but I have found another means to bring you the best of Pinewood's High Schoolers. For these photos, the Art Theory 2 class stretched and gessoed their canvases and are starting to create non-objective abstractions. I did a power point on Abstract Expressionism, Color Field Painting, Post-Painterly Abstraction, and contemporary abstraction. I used images from Pollock, Kline, De Kooning, Rothko, Newman, Louis, Frankenthaler, Stella, and Todd Chilton for the contemporary painter. The kids have two weeks to mess around with squeegees, palette knifes, masking tape, and brush.
