Today in Nursery, the children looked at a painting called “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte” by Georges Seurat.
We zoomed in on the image to see how the painting is made up of many dots of different colours. We then used a digital microscope to look at objects more closely and observe how everything is made up of smaller components.
The children will be making their own artwork using their own version of pointillism over the next week or so. There will be an exhibition of their work along with the rest of the school coming up, so watch this space!
