Third graders have been learning their Warm and Cool colors, they are applying the concept of warm and cool colors to their pointillism project. They are also using their knowledge of foreground, background, and horizon line to complete their pointillist work.
We studied the work of George Seurat and his pointillism (dot painting)
Students drew a tree, and chose either warm or cool colors to create a pointillist amount of leaves.
They used the back end of the brush to create dots in the leaves.
After allowing a day to dry the art, students began drawing a horizon line, small details in the background and at least one detail in the foreground.
