CCA Goes Abstract Expressionist.. with a twist!

Last week at Art Adventures, our teacher Ms. Nikki introduced us to the work of contemporary artist, Cody Hooper. In a series of his works, Hooper combined old with the contemporary by incorporating aged music sheets with his abstract expressionist painting. We took inspiration from this series, and created our own version! Using different painting techniques with brushes and sponges, we took music sheets and tempera to collage and paint in layers a very abstract painting full of colorful expression! We even artificially aged our music sheets using charcoal and watercolor to give that “antique” look! Check out Cody Hooper’s abstract work HERE!

And our results HERE!
