Outline of the activity
The children were studying the works of Georges Seurat,
painter. On the computer using a graphics program, they drew their own
object made up of dots of colour and then developed this into a picture.
The children studied an artist and used his paintings as
a stimulus for their own work.
The paint tool on the graphics package was used with
accuracy to create the drawings.
The pupils used the Internet to research Georges Seurat.
A computer paint package is the ideal tool for recreating a ‘dot’
painting. The precision of the dots on the computer
enabled the children to achieve a greater accuracy with their drawing.
