Have you ever heard of the artist Franz Kline? He was an American abstract expressionist known for large black and white paintings. Here are a couple of examples of his work. Today we created some art inspired by this artist. We cut black construction paper into various widths and lengths. We then placed a piece of white card on the floor and dropped the lines of black paper onto it. When we had a design we liked, we glued the paper down. We also painted some card stock in blocks of color and repeated the process. Here are some of our results.
