So i love the impressionism artists, and I love teaching their styles, but my students are never really fond of Georges Seurat and his dots. I guess I can't blame them, its not that he has a hard or difficult technique, but it is time consuming. I love this project because it makes them slow down and take their time with a project. It also forces them to pay attention and to step back from their work from time to time and see if they are getting the shading right.
This year I let them have the choice of doing it all black and white or in colored markers with no black. I see that most of my favorites were the ones done in black and white. Maybe I will need to just do the project in that next year, but when you see the colored one at the bottom you will know why I am hesitant to take away that possibility.
