Pointillism – with a Manchester twist!

Today, we had a brilliant afternoon of art. We were learning about ‘pointillism’; the most famous exponent being the French artist, Georges Seurat. He didn’t mix his colours and instead used tiny dots of single colour to create the illusion that the colours were blending together when viewed from a distance.

We decided to put a bit of a Manchester spin on it by creating some ‘worker bee’ pieces of art using cotton buds in homage to ‘Cottonopolis’; Manchester was christened this during the industrial revolution due to the vast amounts of cotton that were produced here and shipped all across the globe.

*It was also a great excuse for me to have some ‘proper’ music on in the background (The Stone Roses / Oasis etc) ¬†for inspiration!
