In preparation for our zoom meeting at 10.15 am on Monday, we thought you might like to write a riddle to share with the class, you may like to spend a little time today thinking of your riddle.

Can you guess mine?  (Remember to leave the easiest clue until last!)

I have 4 legs.  I have 2 ears.  I am soft and fluffy.  I live in the wild and I can be a pet.  I like to eat carrots.  What am I?

Art

Today we are going to find out about the Art Movement known as ‘Pointillism’. We will be looking at the work of Georges Seurat who developed the technique in 1886.

To learn more about pointillism read the powerpoint in the resources.

You are going to have a go at designing and making your own ‘Pointillism’ piece of art. Before you make your artwork we are going to explore the different ways in which you could create the dot effect. You might like to try out a range of resources and techniques before you decide on your final piece. Here are a few examples you might like to try:

  • Use a cotton bud dipped into paint to create the dotty effect
  • Try felt tip pens / crayons / pencil crayons / chalks. Which works best and why?
  • Make a 3d version using tiny rolled up pieces of plasticine or playdough
  • Create a collage by cutting out paper dots or use the paper circles from the hole punch!
  • Use coloured sticky dots

Try out as many different methods as you can and share your ideas on Class Dojo. Write a few sentences to evaluate the different methods you used. Use the following questions to help you?

Which method looked the most effective and why?

Which method was the easiest / trickiest to use and why?

What method will you be using for your final piece in the next art lesson?

Next week you will be creating your masterpiece inspired by Pointillism!

Wishing you all a fabulous Friday and a happy and safe weekend.
