Homework – Arts Week Georges Seurat

The children in 3 White have learnt lots about the famous  Parisian painter Georges Seurat this week. We have researched his life as an artist, discovered the methods and techniques such as Pointillism that made his artwork so unique, and even had a go at recreating some of his most famous pieces ourselves!

For your homework 3 White, I would like you to study ‘Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte’ and answer the questions below!
