This is an easy art activity that I use to teach colour choice, patience and critiquing. This is an entire unit on a particular style of art and art elements, it is not simply instructions for an activity. This can easily take four weeks of 80 minute art periods.
In this unit, students will make a pointillism piece in the style of Seurat that can be a terrific portfolio piece. It is an art activity that can be done with few supplies and even by those not necessarily artistic. It also means that even if you have no art background you can do this!
Included in the unit:
Instructions for a lesson all about a historical artist and discussion points to have with students.
Explanation about art piece
Interactive art notebook with practice sections and information
Student exemplars for the anchor chart
Rubric for art
Student examples plus critiques for each one
Art reflection specifically targeted to curriculum expectations.
