Pointillistic pumpkins

Wednesday afternoon art students explored pointillism and pumpkins this autumn.

Students employed tempera paint and cotton swabs to create their art.

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.

Here are some examples of the students work.

Autumn landscape


SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Wednesday afternoon art classes created a mixed media landscape recently.

After using watercolor paint for a background, students employed ink for trees and a landscape.

This required concentration and learning to control the brush.

The final step was to add bright leaf color with sponges.

Everyone enjoyed this project and the opportunity to use many types of media.

The final results were very nice as well!  Maybe you can join us for Wednesday afternoon art classes this winter?
