POINTILLISM CORN   
Written by: Andrea Mulder-Slater [Andrea is one of the creators of KinderArt.com]

Grade: PreK-5

Age: 2-11

Activity Summary:

Students can make a picture of corn using a pointillism technique.

What You Need:

  • paper (heavy weight will work the best - poster paper, watercolor paper, etc.)
  • glue
  • pencil
  • paint (orange, yellow, brown)
  • Q-Tips®
  • construction paper

What You Do:

  1. Cut a corn shape (oval) from a piece of thick paper.
  2. Glue the corn shape onto a sheet of construction paper. (We used black).
  3. Use Q-Tips® dipped into paint to create corn kernal spots on the thick paper. Fill the area completely.
  4. Cut corn husk shapes from construction paper. Glue these pieces down on top of the corn.
  5. Let dry and admire your work!
  6. Optional - you might choose to embellish the background with paint - like we did.

What is Pointillism?

Georges Seurat was a painter who was interested in shape and pattern, but he approached these things in a very unusual way. He was the developer of a very scientific way of painting known as pointillism. He used tiny dots of pure color, side by side to build form in his paintings. These tiny dots of paint, when side by side, give the viewer's eye a chance to blend the color optically, rather than having the colors readily blended on the canvas. This was also known as divisionism.
