Art Using Pointillism
Projects & Activities
This activity is inspired by the artist Walter Ufer, who was a member of the Taos Society of Artists. Ufer sometimes used a painting technique called pointillism, which involves small painted dots to create areas of color that form a pattern or picture.
Find a photograph of your favorite landscape you have visited.
Sketch it out on a piece of paper.
Using the oil pastels, start adding color to your drawing.
Blend the color with your finger or a paper towel.
For the sky and/or background use the pastels to create small dots. Experiment by placing the dots closer together or farther apart. Get creative with your color choices have fun!
