Pointillism Leaves by the 3rd, 4th and 5th Graders
For this project, the students learned about the unique style of art called Pointillism. In pointillism, artists apply color in many small dots. Instead of mixing colors together, colors were placed next to each other to create the colors the artists wanted. We were treated to many beautiful leaves this fall, so we used the fall leaves as inspiration for this project. We practiced drawing the leaves from observation, then used the pointillism technique to add color to them. They look beautiful!
