Color

Our final Wednesday Afternoon Art Class for the winter was full of color.

Students began with their prints made in the previous class.

Everyone chose colors to create a pattern of color on their prints.

This required focus and concentration as every student created their own combinations of colors.

Pointillistic pumpkins


SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Wednesday afternoon art students explored pointillism and pumpkins this autumn.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

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.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

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.
