This week in art we have been looking at pointillism!
In our latest art lesson, we explored pointillism, which is where we create paintings using tiny dots. Today's focus was on stippling, a technique where small, distinct dots are applied to the canvas.
Guided by our exploration of various brush strokes, the children were tasked with transforming a simple outline of a tree into a stunning pointillism masterpiece. To kick things off, each artist drew around their hand, forming the foundation for the tree trunk.
With precision and patience, we used our stippling skills to bring the tree to life. The canvas came alive with a burst of colours and texture as the students skilfully applied countless dots, creating a mesmerising effect that captured the essence of pointillism. The final results were truly impressive, as the hand-drawn trees became vibrant and dynamic, with leaves formed entirely from carefully placed dots.
