A Sunday Afternoon On the Island of La Grande Jatte: A Mural Activity for an Open House

Tomorrow our school is having a curriculum showcase open house.  One of the activities that will be going on is a mural project using Kathy Barbro's template for Seurat's Sunday Afternoon painting.  I am looking forward to creating this museum print out using a pointillism technique. 

I invited interested students to sign up to be called to the art room in shifts to work on the separate pages to create the mural.  We'll be using bingo style markers in the large spaces and crayola markers for more color variety.  The last three groups may use tempera paint and cotton swabs to put on the final touches.  So there should be plenty of dots and points going on for this particular replica.

I am anticipating a very fun day!

I have made a sample page to test the sizes of our markers and had a student helper sort several sets of markers so that we're ready to dive in to our art  tomorrow morning.
