Under the Influence-Week 3

This week we learned about Seurat. The kids saw "A Sunday on La Grande Jatte" and learned about Pointillism. Last week they mixed paints before they used them. This time, I encouraged them to try to create different colors on their actual paintings, as Seurat did by placing tiny dots close enough to each other to "fool" the eye. The kids created their dots by finger painting.

I will most likely be posting their work on Thursdays (instead of Wednesdays) from now on, in order to give my Talk to Me Tuesday feature one more day in the spotlight.
