Primary 6 were fascinated by the technique used in Georges Seurat’s painting, Bathers at Asnieres.
Known as Pointillism because of all the little points or dots applied to make up the overall picture, they thoroughly enjoyed experimenting with the technique for themselves.
They discovered it takes an extremely long time to cover a page with tiny dots, so were full of admiration for Georges as the Bathers painting is over 2 metres by 3 metres!
They looked at Aboriginal art which also uses dots and learned how they had made their own paints and pigments from natural materials such as bark and soil.
So, armed with more modern paint, cocktail sticks and cotton buds the boys and girls of P6 have created their own incredible “dotty” masterpieces.
