Pointillism - 4th Class
Painting in the Style of artist Georges Seurat, using the Technique of Pointillism.
This Art lesson was linked to our work in Geography and SPHE. Through our study of Our Local Area and the theme of Belonging we looked in detail at The Cork Coat of Arms and what its motto represents.
We began by sketching in detail Cork's Coat of Arms and discussed what each feature represents, clearly reflecting its motto "Safe Harbour for Ships."
We discussed the technique of Pointillism, painting with dots, as used by French artist Georges Seurat.
The girls began by painting their colour wheels using the primary colours with only one tool, cotton buds. The girls were amazed to see how effective this art technique can really be.
The class then went on to paint their Cork Coat of Arms using only cotton buds and the three primary colours!
