I hope that you are having a great week so far. My sweet little ones have been sick for the last four days. We are seeing some improvement, which is good because we are hoping to spend Thanksgiving with family this year. A good portion of our marriage we have lived away from family, so the thought of being able to actually spend Thanksgiving with family this year is really exciting. We love our family on both sides so much, so...we are crossing our fingers that our cute little girls will be better soon. Plus, it always breaks my heart when my children don't feel well.
Today I wanted to share a fun, simple Fall Art Lesson that produces gorgeous results. I have taught this art lesson to both of my daughter's Kindergarten classes. I know that children both younger and older would enjoy this art project as well. All of the children I have ever taught this beginning pointillism art lesson to have loved it. There is something magical that happens as the dots are placed on the paper and come to life.
Pointillism is a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of color are applied in patterns to form an image or composition.

The only other thing you will want to use to teach this lesson is examples of pointillism paintings, such as:
GEORGES SEURAT: "Sunday afternoon on the island of La Grande-Jatte"
PAUL SIGNAC: "The Pine Tree at St. Tropez"
Thanks for stopping by.
