Last week H exhibited a project during Open House at school. It was an opportunity for the kids to to develop a project that reflects their special interests and abilities. Keeping in mind that she is only in Kindergarten, I chose something simple and enjoyable but incorporate a lesson as well. This gave me a chance to teach her about the artist Georges Seurat and Pointilism (a technique of painting in which small dots of color are applied to form an image).
WHAT YOU NEED
Canvas board or heavy weight paper
Q-tips or small paint brush
I chose one of my favorite photos of H&N from our beach trip last year.
I drew an outline sketch on the canvas so H had something to follow.
I explained to her how to create colors by painting on top of an existing color. She was fascinated by this technique and happily painted away.
Here is her masterpiece! I'm proud of my lil' Seurat. It was great seeing what other kids did in her class and all the other grades as well.
Do you have a favorite artist?
Have a wonderful weekend!
