Investing in the neighborhood school #2

In April I prepared a fun project for
Autty's 1st grade class about Art.
(I am a little behind in some of my posting:) so this one is a month old)

I displayed 3 differnt types of art :
 Pointallism,  Brush Stroke and Cube art.
I then told the kids that today we were goign to be artist and we attemped to do pointillism painting with q-tips.

The kids really enjoyed it and took there time to make sure their pictures were full of dots.

Here I am explaining what we are about to do. :)
This dot to dot q-tip painting is an inexpensive craft for kids and teaches them to take their time and learn a new techinque.
This is a good group craft I think.

Check out this link to see more dot to dot art by my daughter.:)

Also George Seurat is a famous pointillism painter, who developed the technique. His famous painting Sunday Afternoon On the Island of La Grands Jatte took him 2 years to paint and is comprised of millions of dots to form the picute. It is spectacular.
