Using warm colors and pumpkin colors in a pattern of dots, students worked to create a unique dot-based pumpkin.

Pointillism is a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of color are applied in patterns to form an image. Georges Seurat and Paul Signac developed the technique in 1886, branching from Impressionism.

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.

After completing their painted pumpkins, students cut out their images and applied them to a solid color background.
