Einstein and Pointillism?
If you're wondering what on earth Albert Einstein has to do with Pointillism then I don't blame you!
The fact is the Picassos at Camp Imaginators were set to delve into a little book called "I am Albert Einstein" today so I was charged with the task of coming up with an art lesson that would mesh well with this book. So I considered the contributions of Einstein to science and thought of how his curious nature and his inventiveness are what make him notorious today and I realized that the same can be said of George Seurat the French artist who developed the technique called Pointillism.
So, after a little intro on what the day would be like and what we were about to undertake, the Picassos took a look at this video...
Then we got straight into our project for the day! A simple sunflower with a butterfly perched on its petals but done in the style of George Seurat... using Pointillist theory ;P
Once they were finished we framed them using brightly coloured paper to complete the piece! Beautiful :)
See what they did at The Reading Garden.

Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
