This creative Pointillism Eye unit of work, teaches students about Pointillism, Seurat and optical mixing. It includes everything you need.
It starts with Students looking at a PowerPoint on Pointillism focusing on Seurat. (16 slides) It includes a script and looks at:
A definition for Pointillism
Seurat & Signac
How the Impressionists influenced them.
Two of Seurats paintings in detail.
Pablo Jurado Ruiz, a contemporary artists who used pointillism today.
How to mix colours using Pointillism.
Then a stage by stage look at how the ‘good example’ (Main picture above) was built up.
A Pointillism worksheet enables students practice optical mixing – this also helps create a great display.
You then have two choices. Either get your students to draw an eye, (using the eye drawing reference sheet provided) or use the faint eye provided and ask students to add dots over the top.
There is a Self Assessment sheets that looks at how closely they have applied their dots and how neatly. (Two on an A4 page)
There are suggested extension tasks.
Using faint eye: 2 hrs 5 mins.
Drawing own eye: 3 hrs.
(There suggested extension tasks could make this a lot longer!)

I set up The Arty Teacher because I have a passion for my subject that I want to share with other art teachers around the world.
I have been a high school art teacher for over 20 years, so I understand what it’s like to be in front of a class of students, often with very different abilities and attitudes.
I wanted to develop resources that would help teachers to bring out the best in every student in every class. I also wanted to free-up staff from time-consuming lesson preparation to let them focus instead on delivering exciting, motivating, dynamic lessons, supported by excellent resources.
