Robins Inspired by Georges Seurat

The past few weeks, we have been studying the artist Georges-Pierre Seurat.

For 12 weeks, we study one artist in detail. We learn about their life and study their paintings.

The Seine and la Grande Jette

A Sunday on the Island of La Grande Jette


To go along with our lesson, we painted a Robin in the style of Seurat. I chose Robins because we were studying the state of Connecticut and their state bird is the American Robin. I figured I would tie in two subjects into one fun project!

    we have yet to finish Picasso and I think I'll move to this artist.....he does look like fun. I remember an art hist teacher in college discussing his work like it was yesterday.
