Make Art Like Georges Seurat

Kids can get the look of Georges Seurat’s paintings with this fun and easy twist on a classic technique.

What you’ll need

  • Pencils with unused erasers
  • Heavy paper or cardboard
  • Acrylic paints
  • Paper plate

How to make it

  • Use a pencil to outline your design on the paper or cardboard. Simple drawings work best.

  • Squeeze the paints onto a paper plate, keeping the colors separate. Set aside one pencil per color.

  • To apply each color, lightly dip the eraser into the paint, then dab it onto the paper. For a layered effect, let the paint dry, then add dots in another color. Step back from the work periodically to see how the colors are blending. Use this technique to fill in the entire drawing.
