What’s the Point of Pointillism?


As part of our schoolwide unit on Europe, all students have been exploring Impressionism. Each class is learning about Pointillism and some of the artists who painted in this style, including Seurat and Pissarro.

The Preschool and Younger Kid classes are creating landscapes by using their fingers and/or little tools to create sections of dotted colors.

The Middle and Older classes are experimenting with color blending by highly concentrating two separate colors to create the visual effect of a solid shade. This exercise will be a reference sheet as they execute their Pointillism masterpieces. Keep on the lookout for our finished products, soon to be displayed in the commons.
