Pointillism offers a new adventure in art making inspired by artist George Seurat. Use the Internet or art books to explore how Seurat used dots to create his paintings. Then offer Q-tips to your activity partner and begin to explore painting with dots. Experiment with using the Q-tip to swirl the paint around the page. Many dots in one place creates a solid appearance, and fewer dots look lighter. Dip the Q-tip into many colors and create complex colors on a page. Scattered dots move across a page like seeds in the wind! Enjoy your time together and embrace finding new ways to be creative!
