Artist Study: Seurat

 Our first artist study of the year was on Georges Seurat.

 At our first tea time we watched this little slide show about Seurat and pointillism.

 We also read the Getting to Know... biography.

 Another book we used was Name That Style: All About Isms in Art.  There are brief descriptions and examples for all kinds of art styles included!

 We checked this book out from our library.  It is a little lengthy for one sitting, but it has some good information.

 James Mayhew's Katie books are lots of fun.  In this one she visits several pointillist paintings.

 We had this book in our collection from when Alice was smaller.

 We made color wheels one week and found that just like a pointillist painting, the colors blend better when you're further away.

 We also tried this melted crayon project I found on Pinterest.

 This was much more difficult than I thought it would be, but we had a good time anyway!

For our final Seurat tea time we had sprinkled pointillism cookies!

In October we will be learning about Dali.  We're also going to be starting an art class with some friends!
