This week in Year 2, we have been learning all about pointillist art. We looked at a talented pointillist artist, called George Seurat. We observed the style that he created his brilliant pieces of artwork in. We talked about how different it is to our normal style of painting, using flat brush strokes.

We practised the skills of pointillism, using paint and on ‘Paint a picture’ on Purple Mash.

Once we had practised the skills and the style of pointillism, we had a go at creating a butterfly, using our prior knowledge of symmetry.

We found it very tricky but we persevered and created some beautiful artwork in the style of George Seurat.

  1. Pointillism is one of my favourite techniques! The work of Georges Seurat is truly beautiful and children can produce stunning work of their own. I’m looking forward to seeing your work.

  2. Pointillism is also one of my favorite styles! Your work looks fabulous. I am also impressed with your art work on Purple Mash – Well done!
