Second Sunday: Helen Frankenthaler + Fields of Color

Welcome to SFMOMA’s virtual Second Sundays, a monthly series that includes a reading with a librarian from the San Francisco Public Library, followed by a guided art activity you can do at home. In this installment, we’ll be focusing on painter Helen Frankenthaler!

Sweet Stories with San Francisco Public Library

Mr. Jim reads Dancing Through Fields of Color: The Story of Helen Frankenthaler by Elizabeth Brown and illustrated by Aimee Sicuro.

Art Project: Torn Paper Collage

Though Helen Frankenthaler’s works are nonspecific, the colors and shapes bring to mind different moods and associations, often tied to nature. In this project, we’re going to make a torn paper collage inspired by her process!
