Art Week in 2 Blue

We have enjoyed discovering the style of Art known as Pointillism and looking at paintings by Georges Seurat, who pioneered this technique.  We also looked at Aboriginal Art, which uses a similar technique of dots to create pictures and patterns

We looked at how Art is all around us, and then planned and made bags which we then decorated in the Pointillist style. We used coloured dots to help us learn number bonds to 20, created Pointillism factfiles, painted in the style of Seurat and created Pointillist pictures on Purple Mash.  The peg boards were a great tool for creating simple Pointillist patterns and images.  We even got the chance to visit a Georges Seurat exhibition using the VR headsets! 

Have a look at some of the fun activities we have taken part in.
