Miss Young's Art Room: 5th Grade Pointillism
Get to the point: Georges Seurat and Pointillism by Nate Heck. Artrageous with Nate, is a children's art program that allows art history (and art) to become approachable and relatable again. After extensive research through the National Visual Art Standards, I created a program that exceeds these standards, delivering on essential benchmarks through a creative and exciting new means.
This is a project that I did with Middle School students. This was my example for them. It is a piece of dark colored mat board, and acrylic or tempera paint applied with a toothpick. It can be done with images as simple as coloring book page art or as detailed as you have the patience for. It is so much fun to do and the results are always phenomenal.

Sunday Afternoon Mural- Art Murals for Kids Great site. Huge murals where each kid in the class can colour a part and then appreciate that some works of art are much bigger than they imagine.
Pointillism was a technique I didn't fully appreciate until I had to do it for an art project in 6th grade. Thank you, TREK. (Oh, and Seurat. I guess he deserves some credit, too.)
Ben Heine, dynamic creator of the Pencil vs. Camera technique, has started another project that is equally captivating. His Digital Circlism series captures famous pop stars in what he describes as a cross between pointillism and pop-art. Each highly recognizable portrait takes a sizable 100-180 hours to complete as each circle of color is hand placed. Check out the last image for a peek at his labor intensive technique.
