PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This creative project teaches students about Pointillism, Seurat and color mixing. It is flexible in length and could be completed as quickly as 1hr 20 mins. If students draw their own Eiffel Tower, or if you include some of the suggestions on the end of the lesson plan, it would be 2 to 3 hrs.

It starts with Students looking at a PowerPoint on Pointillism focusing on Seurat. (9 slides) It includes a script and looks at:

A definition for Pointillism
Seurat & Signac
How the Impressionists influenced them.
Two of Seurats paintings in detail.
Pablo Jurado Ruiz, a contemporary artists who used pointillism today.
How to mix colors using Pointillism.

There is then a worksheet where students can practice mixing colors with dots. This is an attractive worksheet which would look great in a sketchbook or as a display.

Students are then asked to recreate Seurat’s Eiffel Tower. More able pupils will draw the Eiffel Tower. Less able, or younger students, will place their dots over the faint image of the Eiffel Tower.

An extension task is suggested as well as other ideas to extend the project e.g. finding France on a world map and Paris on a France map.

I am always looking to improve my resources, so if you have any suggestions please leave them in the comments box.
