Pointillistic trees

Standard

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Kindergarten and first grade students have explored the art movement of pointillism.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students used tempera paint and cotton swabs to create dots of color on their tree paintings.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Pointillism is a post-impressionist school of painting exemplified by Georges Seurat and his followers in late 19th-century France, characterized by the application of paint in small dots and brush strokes.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Pointillism is a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of color are applied in patterns to form an image.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The term “Pointillism” was first coined by art critics in the late 1880s to ridicule the works of these artists, and is now used without its earlier mocking connotation.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students used a variety of green hues along with yellow and red to create the color on their tree paintings.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

After completing their trees, students spent the next week using the same technique on the background.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students added many hues of blue and violet to their background.
