We have the mural glued together as of Tuesday and we are letting each class do a mini critique of the work. As we talk we are finding places to do additional dots and blending of colors. It might be nice to work in some signatures along the border also. Perhaps we will do initials in pointillism.

We are talking through the results in each class right now. I will most likely take volunteers as they finish other assignments and lead them through the final touches. As you can see there are some areas that may need more yellow and some blending to do on the dark portion of the lady's skirt in the foreground. Georges Seurat specified that the frame on his original always be white, so we will follow that suggestion. We may put additional color on the pointillism border and then use white cardstock to frame the edge. I'd like the framing strips to be about 2 1/2 inches wide.
