It was a colorful salute to abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock on his birthday, Jan. 28, when participants in a Menlo Park Library adult art class gathered to drip, smear, and move paint freely over their canvases.

Christie Inocencio, a teaching artist who leads programs at libraries, senior centers, schools, and other locations, helped participants explore Pollock's painting style through the greatest form of flattery: imitation.

Inocencio started her company, Christie's Creative Cupboard, in order to fill a need in the community for fun, educational programs for all age groups, according to the library's website.

Earlier today, she taught students how to paint in the style of neo-expressionist artist Jean-Michel Basquiat.

The free art programs are funded by the Friends of the Menlo Park Library.
