art class 6

For week 6 of our preschool art class, we focused on Pointalism. We talked about great artists who use this method and looked at examples of their work.

I did not have a chance to get to the library before this class. So, I googled pointalism on my tablet and took some screen shots of work. I showed my little ones a slide show. We zoomed in closely to see the dots that are characteristic of pointalism.

After viewing works by famous artists, I let the kids try their hand at pointalism.

We used Q Tips and THESE TEMPLATES from Therapy Fun Zone.

Most kids hung in there for a while and did individual dots in each circle, but by the end, they were mostly using their Q Tips as paint brushes and making big strokes across the paper. They had a great time!
