Pointillism Painting

In Art class, the 1st grade students are learning about a new painting style called Pointillism. We’ve discussed the amount of detail and concentration required for this type of painting and related it to the incredible detail and care that God puts into His creatures here on earth.  Each student chose a picture that entailed one of God’s creations (animal, reptile, fish etc..). When looking at their pictures, students practice drawing what they see. After the drawing is complete, students paint their work only in dots, using a Q-tip as their painting utensil. The students are really excited to learn about this process and it is a joy to watch!
