EASY DOT FLOWERS FOR KIDS
POINTILLISM AND GEORGES SEURAT
Famous artist, Georges Seurat was born in 1859 in Paris, France. He found that rather than mixing the colors of paint on a palette, he could place tiny dots of different colors next to each other on the canvas and the eye would mix the colors. His paintings worked a lot like computer monitors work today. His dots were like the pixels on a computer screen.
Pointillism is the practice of applying small strokes or dots of color to a surface so that from a distance they visually blend together. It requires a very scientific approach to art.

WHY DO ART WITH KIDS?
Children are naturally curious. They observe, explore, and imitate, trying to figure out how things work and how to control themselves and their environments. This freedom of exploration helps children form connections in their brain, it helps them learn—and it’s also fun!
Art is a natural activity to support this essential interaction with the world. Kids need the freedom to explore and experiment creatively.
Art allows children to practice a wide range of skills that are useful not only for life but also for learning. These include the aesthetic, scientific, interpersonal, and practical interactions that can be discovered through the senses, intellect, and emotions.
Making and appreciating art involves emotional and mental faculties!
Art, whether making it, learning about it, or simply looking at it – offers a wide range of important experiences. In other words, it’s good for them!
