I do action painting with my first graders to teach them about Pollock and
color mixing.
I give them red, yellow and blue and they dribble it all over their paper.
Then they mix their colors and dribble that.
The marble in the box works great. Also try other smooth balls, like a
ping-pong ball, or pool ball to make other larger lines.
Also, let each child hang a piece of paper on the wall, load their brush and
touch it to the paper at the top. The paint runs down the paper, creating
different tracks. It's lots of fun and any age can do it.
Also, try letting them paint with odd tools like Pollock did. Like a spatula,
wisk, toothbrush, etc. Even feathers. Have fun. J
