1 P OINTILLISM & G EORGES S EURAT

2 G EORGES S EURAT Born in 1859 in Paris, France Founder of Pointillism Died of a sickness in 1891 at the age 32. Influenced art and artists with the great style he created in just a short career. Georges Seurat

3 P OINTILLISM Pointillism is a style of art using only dots. Georges Seurat, preferred the name Divisionism. Art critics gave it the name Pointillism. “ La Parade” by Georges Seurat

4 P OINTILLISM a style of painting in which small distinct points of primary colors create the impression of a wide selection of secondary and intermediate colors When viewed from a distance, the eye blends the dots, in a process called optical blending. Even though no orange paint was used, red and yellow create the effect. = COLOR THEORY/MIXING “The Eiffel Tower” by Georges Seurat

5 “The Papal Palace” by Paul Signac ( ) Paul Signac is another great pointillism artist

6 “Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte” by Georges Seurat Took Georges Seurat 2 years 3,456,000 dots (one at a time!)

8 P OINTILLISM C REATING V ALUE To simulate darker areas The denser, tighter the spacing of the dots, the darker the tones will appear. Make larger dots creating darker dots Draw dots close together Using complementary or split-complementary colors Juxtaposed dots of multi-colored paint To simulate light areas Make the dots finer Use a soft touch when making dots. Place the dots farther apart form one another Using complementary or split-complementary colors Juxtaposed dots of multi-colored paint

9 P RACTICE In your sketchbook divide a piece of paper into 4. Draw 4 different drawings of your choice. A scene or landscape will be better. Think about background, middle ground, and foreground. When done, bring to Mrs. Ewy to get one approved.

10 D IRECTIONS FOR P ROJECT Get a 10x12 piece of paper from the back table LIGHTLY sketch the still life in front of you WITH PENCIL When done drawing, get your sketch approved. Once it’s approved (which means it doesn’t need any corrections), you may start POINTILLISM. Did the brush or q-tip in the paint. Use color of paint "dot" in the line design, one dot at a time. EXAMPLE – if you need it to look orange, use dots of red & yellow. Apply paint in a dot like pattern, using juxtaposed dots of multi- colored paint to "dot" in the rest of the design, one dot at a time. The dots are put closer together to make it darker, farther apart to make it lighter

11 OBJECTIVES Optical Blending using juxtaposed dots of color. COLOR THEORY/MIXING New technique - Pointillism Art History = Georges Seurat & Pointillism RUBRIC Will be graded on the following: Using only dots20points Using optical blending 20 points Time & Effort20 points Neatness20 points Quality of Work for the Student20 points Total: 100 points O BJECTIVES & R UBRIC
