Georges Seurat: Pointillism and Neo-impressionism

  • Aaronndale Community 6929 Matthew Place Springfield, VA, 22151 United States (map)

In this class, we will explore the work of French artist Georges-Pierre Seurat.  Seurat is most well known for his use of color in a unique painting style referred to as pointillism. In this technique, contrasting dots of paint are applied in patterns to form an image. The class will begin with a lecture examining Seurat’s most famous works.  A practicum will follow the lecture. As a group, we will produce a copy of a Seurat work, replicating his technique of pointillism.
