Young Welwyn Garden City abstract impressionists have created novel artworks by following in the footsteps of the great Jackson Pollock - throwing paint at canvas.
Children at Watchlytes Nursery covered three blank canvasses with paint thrown in egg shells in an Easter art project.
Nursery teacher Caroline Ortega said: “We asked the children to bring in egg shells if anyone was baking, and bought three blank canvasses. We filled the egg shells with different paints.
“Jackson Pollock threw paint as well. We would love to convince someone our canvasses are masterpieces, and maybe raise some money for the school.
“The children absolutely loved it.
“There was a lot of paint in hair and on faces, but it all added to the charm of the day. Luckily we have very understanding parents.”
