George, oh George!

George Seurat the artist that uses tiny dots of color to paint with. I did two projects based on this artist this year one with 1st grade and one with 7th grade. First grade I introduced the basic concept of an artist using a different style of painting than with just regular brush strokes. I give each student a porcupine ring to paint with. Some painting turn out great and others well they had fun doing it! The 7th grade has more of an art history lesson about the artist. Using fine tip markers they create a 3x7 card of any design landscape they want using only dots of color, these pictures come out awesome. I keep the paper small because, yes they are older students, they get bored easily and some mess up the picture before totally complete.
