HHHS Students Explore Abstract Art

Students in Jessica Nash's high school art classes studied works by abstract artists, such as Jackson Pollock, Wassily Kandinsky, Helen Frankenthaler, Mark Rothko and more, learning how artists express mood and deeper meaning through the elements of art.

Students were encouraged to experiment with painting techniques, challenge themselves to find inspiration in real life, and translate it into abstract forms, while working in class collaboratively.

"I tried to challenge myself and use techniques I have never used before, especially with using such a big canvas,” said Alyssa Kendel. “Overall, I really enjoyed this project, and I will do more abstract art on my own."
