Pointillism in Eimear’s 4th

4th class have been busy in Art making some bright and colourful Cherry Blossom paintings.

First they worked on their blending and brush stroke techniques to create a background. Some blended different shades of blue for the sky, some added purple to the sky and some added green at the bottom to represent grass. When the background dried, they used brown paint to add trees to their painting. Then it was time to add some colour. The children used the pointillism technique to create their cherry blossom trees. Here are some pictures of them working on their artwork:

The final products are beautiful and are now hanging up in our classroom. Take a look below:
