Jackson Pollock

Jackson Pollock lived in America at New York city he was a famous painter and he enjoyed his work.
Jackson Pollock was a passionate hard working man. He flicked and splatter on his artwork but I didn't recognized he was really famous . Jackson Pollock was artistically using his kind of style to paint so he can sell it.

Also he was born on January 28th 1912 and died when he was 44 years old in a car crash accident in august 11th 1956. His funeral was at the springs, New York because of that he was a very fantastic painter. He was one of the few American painters to be recognized during his lifetime. His name was Paul Jackson Pollock.

He has a lot of paintings that he sell it when he was a very famous painter. He smoked a lot and drink-ed during his painting. There was a lady called Lee Krasner it was Jackson Pollock’s wife that likes to paint as well.

First Day Of Swimming

On the first day of swimming we were doing lessons with one of the
instructors. We entered the pool safely and we had two instructors. Our instructor was called Ben he took our lessons.

Lesson one is to do your arms as a rocket ship but straight. He said, “you don’t even have to kick your legs”. I was watching my friend go first and he was kicking furiously in the pool. I felt comfortable keeping my arms where they have to go. When it was my turn he called me to go. As I was getting closer and closer he pushed me towards the end of the pool.

I was rotating around and around until I got dizzy. I couldn't breath so I took one deep breath and dived back in the rippling water. I just needed to concentrate with my legs straight without kicking.

We had our last lesson with the flutter boards. They kept me floating on the side of the pool and it made me swim fast. At the end I came back to wait for our second round.

After our second round we had a breathing competition and Texas won it. Ben told us to get out of the pool to go for a rinse in the hot shower and change back into our dry and clean uniforms. We still have two more weeks of swimming lessons I can’t wait. I had great swimming lessons with our instructor.
