Join us for a fun workshop all about pointillism! Pointillism is an offshoot of Impressionism in which the painting technique uses dots of color to achieve the forms. When the painting is viewed from a distance, the dots merge to create wonderful colors that scintillate in the light! In this workshop, you will learn an easy way of creating pointillist works like those of Georges Seurat, Paul Signac, and others who led this movement of Post-Impressionism.
