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!
