Pointillist Trees


The 3/4s painted Pointillist Trees.  They have studied trees in Science.  We learned about the artist Georges Seurat by reading Scholastic Art magazine.  Students identified and described Pointillist paintings.   They created a Pointillist painting of trees showing dimension and form by color mixing.  Tips:  use the back end of the paintbrush, a q-tip or a small brush.  Keep the size of the paper small (9x12" is plenty).

These are really pointillistic artworks, great! Students did'nt outline their trees with dots (many students do!), that's why these are so great I think! Real pointillism. My compliments!
