Georges Seurat invented the technique known as Pointillism, which uses tiny dots instead of broad strokes to put the paint on the canvas. The individual dots of red, yellow and blue are sucked in through your eyes and mixed up in your head to create a variety of shimmering shades.

Jackson Pollock (Jack the Dripper) was an American painter and a major figure in the abstract expressionist movement. Pollock's technique of pouring and dripping paint is thought to be one of the origins of the term action painting.

Alexander Calder is the most representative cinetic art sculptor.
Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944) was a Russian-born artist who is often credited as being one of the first modern artists to create abstract art. Kandinsky's goal was to use brilliant color with geometric shapes, lines and points to create images that had no symbolic, figurative, or narrative elements.

  • Pointillism Practice Page. Pointillism. Here's a place to point and paint.
  • Pollock interactive. Dripping Art. It’s a simple click and move the mouse around affair, but the feeling of the paint splodging around is surprisingly pleasant. Each click changes the color. Enjoy!

  • Pointillist paintings . This lesson is based on the pointillist technique used by artists such as Andre Derain and Georges Seurat. It introduces the pupils to a different way of painting and includes aspects of colour mixing.Pupils look at a picture painted using this technique and study parts in detail. They then have the opportunity to create their own picture using the pointillist technique and apply previous knowledge of colour mixing to this. Practical activities are then suggested to follow up the activity in groups.
