After studying the work of Long Island artist Jackson Pollock and visiting his studio in Springs, students from Mattituck High School took part in an “action painting” activity on the front lawn Tuesday.

Armed with squirt bottles full of paint, students created individual works in Pollock’s abstract expressionist “drip painting” style, then collaborated on a larger class canvas.
