Student work:

We will look at the work of Neo-Impressionist artists such as Georges Seurat and then make paintings using the technique of pointillism for this project. You will need to either bring in an object you would like to do a painting of or take or find a reference photo to use. The best reference photos are the ones you take yourself! Your image must not be copyrighted.
