Don’t Forget the Dots!

We looked at and discussed the Aboriginal art of Australia. We paid special attention to the use of dots in the aboriginal paintings by comparing and contrasting them to the paintings of the Pointillism painting style of Georges Seurat. The student selected an animal and drew it large and simplified. Then she outlined, added bold zigzag lines and used a variety of earth tones to color over the brown paper. Throughout the process the student is encouraged to continue outlining and adding dots by layering with tempera paint and oil pastels.Православни икони
