Inspired by the Masters III: Pointellism

Students studied the work of French artist, Georges Suerat and looked at many of his pointillist paintings.  Seurat was interested in the fact that the human eye is able mix colors when different colored dots are painted right next to each other.  Students used this idea to paint a still-life using only primary colors.  Students painted dots of yellow and red to create orange, dots of blue and yellow to create green and blue and red dots to create purple.
