Year 4 getting the point of art

In Year 4, we studied the French artist, Georges Seurat, and his style of painting called Pointillism which involved using tiny dots of paint instead of big dabs or strokes. As you step away from a piece of pointillism artwork the dots merge to create images, shading and colours that are often described as being luminous and shimmery. We experimented with the pointillist technique and create our own fantastic paintings using the tip of a fine paint brush and cotton bud. We had lots of fun creating our pointillism pieces of artwork. and we learnt that the technique requires a lot of patience!
