Pointillism on a Banana!

An awesome lesson if I do say so myself! To start the year, I had every grade level, k-5th, listen to the story, The Dot, and had them do dot related activities. Positive and Negative dots, Primary water color dots and then the 5th grade did Pointillism on a banana dots. A great one visit lesson that really had them all engaged!

Students could choose to do their own simple design such as their name, pumpkins, stars....whatever they like.

Or, they could use one of 2 designs I gave them. The point I wanted them to reach is that this style of art making takes time and that Suerat sure had patients when painting in this style!

Bananas are no longer safe! Fifth graders are making art with them!
