Cathkin pupils tackle mod­ern master

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

A group of first year pupils from Cathkin High School took a break from the nor­mal cur­ricu­lum to cre­ate a large paint­ing in the style of the artist Jack­son Pol­lock.

Nova Cameron, Declan Fer­gu­son, Tai Gas­tasab, Wil­liam Gray, Evan Mcdon­ald and Ju­lia Mon­teith cre­ated the work the same way as Pol­lock fa­mously did.

They laid the can­vas on the floor and walked round it while throw­ing and squirt­ing paint onto it.

The fin­ished work is two me­tres long.

Teach­ers said the pupils did well to con­trol the paint, keep the work sym­met­ri­cal and not make a mess of the class­room.
