Second graders have been researching his work, and also the work of another artist I greatly admire, Jackson Pollock. You can read about our research in the post directly previous to this one. I decided that Rockwell's painting, The Connoisseur, was a great way to talk about the two contrasting styles. Here are our artworks inspired by the styles of these two great American artists. We made the drip paintings and designed the floors of our gallery spaces, and took photos of each other in "thinking poses." Thanks to this post from Artsonia for the spark.
