George Seurat was part of one of the most exciting art revolutions of all time.
The French Neo-Impressionist painter was mentored by famous artists like Claude Monet, Renoir, Sisley, and Pissarro. All of whom were part of Paris's movement, bringing the art world to a whole new way of thinking outside the box.
These artists taught George it was ok to have his style and stand independently, using the techniques he learned.
Seurat painted in tiny dots of color, with the theory that the viewer's eye would mix them. This idea became quite a new sensation and a technique that would be called "pointillism." Today, a nickname given as insult by art critics will forever be known as "George Seurat's" unique painting style.
Our acrylic on wood class will be something your kids will love to learn and understand how colors work together, complementing the color wheel.
Each of your little artists will gain confidence as they learn and understand this method of contrasting colors, and patience, as they put hundreds of dots together, could make something so beautiful.
Out of all the classes we have shared over the years, This class always is in the top ten.
Our 3-hour class will be filled with painting, lunch and optional swimming our last half hour of class. Please pack a lunch daily for your child. If you choose to swim please bring a suit and towel. We will have an open-ended art table set up for children who choose not to swim.
Our summer classes and camps are now limited to 14 children.
