This student art lesson begins with a biography of the artist, Georges Seurat. It then gives step-by-step directions for a lesson on pointillism. The students will create their own version of The Seine at Le Grande Jatte, one of Seurat's most famous paintings. They will use paper plates as palettes and Q-tips as brushes. This lesson is one in a series of nine lessons focusing on great artists. To enhance this lesson, teachers may want to have a monthly Artist of the Month bulletin board to display the student work.
