Re: [art_education] Pointillism
- My middle school classes did Pointillism. They got to choose between markers or paint. I had them pick a country other than the US to choose their subject matter from (I was trying to throw in a little multiculturalism here). They had to incorporate symbols, objects, foods, people and architecture into their pictures. We had one day of research in the library and online. I was amazed at how creative they were putting together their compositions. No two pictures looked anything alike. Hope that helps.

Subject: [art_education] Pointillism
My advanced art class wants to do pointillism next
quarter, I was planning on working from a photograph
of a landscape to complete a painting in the style.
Has anyone done any other projects using this style?
Just looking for ideas. I am mapping all my classes
right now so am a little used up creatively!
Thanks in advance.

- This may not be for your level - I'm k-6 - but I myself enjoyed doing
examples in front of the kids.
I purchased a gross of porcupine painting rings from the oriental
trading catalog. After introducing Georges Seurat and his pointillism
style we drew out a simple landscape and used the rings to apply the
paint. I had just reviewed the color wheel with them so I decided to
only give them the primary colors plus black and white. The rings
allow the students to create a lot of dots at once. They mixed and
blended the primary colors and the black and white for a wide variety
of color in their paintings.
The results are very loose and definately not detailed because of the
size of the rings so a large paper works best. This might be a fun
project to get them into the pointillism that is more detailed.
