Art Activity: Dots Like Seurat
Our art activity today was based on the art of Georges Seurat. Seurat was best known for his technique of using small dots or strokes of contrasting color to create subtle changes in form. We showed the children one of the Seurat's works of art and explained to them how he created his paintings just from using small dots. We then gave the children Q-tips, paper, and a palette of paint. We asked the children to create a picture just from colored dots.
