Pointillism Paintings

In this Drawing and Painting studio, Little Artists painted their very first picture using the pointillism technique. Screen Shot 2014-05-19 at 8.42.46 PM

Georges-Pierre Seurat, a well known french impressionist painter used the pointillism technique in the painting above using tiny juxtaposed dots of multi-colored paint which allowed the viewer's eye to blend colors optically, rather than having the colors physically blended on the canvas.

Little Artists lightly sketched in the shapes of their subject and started painting the colored dots. Artists chose the colors they felt needed to be painted first then added shades and tints to add dimension.

Little Artists added their own touch to their backgrounds. Adding clouds and sunsets.

At the end of each of our studio series, Little Artists sit down together to compliment and comment on their work and the work of others. What was easy? What did you learn? What did you see in your friends work that was really cool? Would you change anything about your work next time? Through this discussion Little Artists are learning about art dialogue and gaining confidence and pride in their work.
