Art Appreciation: Pointillism


video

Last Friday we had our first art appreciation session in Room 108.  It was a very enjoyable lesson on pointillism.  Seurat is probably the most well known pointillism artist.  Students were encouraged to draw their own backdrop or images and then fill them in using one of three pointillism techniques: glue and paper dots, marker dotting, or q-tips and paint.  Whatever their choice children created some very original pieces of work and seemed to have a great time doing it! 
Thank you to the Room 108 Art Appreciation Parents and especially the photographer for the pictures!  Enjoy the slideshow and make sure you have your speakers on for some Paul McCartney!
