Pointillistic pumpkins


SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

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.

Maybe you can join us for our winter classes beginning in January.

Pumpkin Day


 

The Art Junction held its first Pumpkin Painting, Designing and Carving Day on Saturday, October 20, 2012.

Even though it was a cool, blustery day we had a great turnout, and everyone had fun exploring how to design a pumpkin.

There were many pumpkins to choose from for design choices.

Everyone enjoyed all of the possibilities available in the creative process.

There were many ways to explore decorating a pumpkin as young and old joined in the process, learning from each other.  Maybe you can join us next year!
