After a longggg week, I am basking in the gloriousness that is a weekend 🙂
This morning my hubby and I stole away for an early morning date: delicious donuts and a crisp walk through a beautiful park.
We are sooo excited about our little boy joining our family in May, but I am already starting to feel the shift in relationship between the two of us. We want to savor the time we have left as a family of two.
This week was chocked-full of fun activities in the classroom, more of which I’ll be sharing about this week. Today, I’m going to share a quick and easy art activity that we tried.
We’ve been studying different art techniques and this month we focused on pointillism. We studied George Seurat, a French painter known for his pointillism paintings:
Each student was given a piece of paper, some paint, and q-tips.
We discussed primary colors and secondary colors, and then experimented with how to blend the different colors to create new paint options.
They brainstormed a little and then got to work!
The beauty of pointillism is that up close, it looks like a bunch of dots, but when you hold the paper away from you, the picture comes into view.
Here are some of the final products:
It was relatively quick, easy to do, and rewarding for the kiddos.
Why don’t you give it a try in your classroom?
