My Day Job and Jackson Pollock

Don't be jealous... but this is my day job!

I am one of the lucky teachers of preschool children.

In our class we learn about an artist a month...

and this month it was Jackson Pollock.

To say that we had fun and got messy is an understatement.
(don't worry... we prepared the parents in advance)

The children each painted a t-shirt by throwing the paint 
at the shirt... they had a blast!

A few of the children even had paint on their backs and 
behind their ears...

Some had their own very unique painting styles...

The shirts came out awesome!

I had to get into the act... 
I saw this chair sitting there and I just couldn't resist...

By the time I was finished I had the whole class wanting me to come over and splatter paint the furniture in their rooms...

It was a great day that was finished off with pizza and ice cream...

Do I have the best job or what??!!
