Pointíleachas // Pointillism

Seo ceacht ealíne deas simplí atá díreach déanta agam le Rang 6, ag díriú isteach ar an bpointíleachas. Thosaigh muid ag breathnú ar, agus ag plé, ‘The Seine and la Grande Jatte’ déanta ag an ealaíontóir Bheilgeach, George Seurat.

Here’s a fairly simple visual arts lesson I’ve just done with 6th class, with a focus on pointillism. We began by discussing ‘The Seine and la Grande Jatte’ by Belgian artist, George Seurat.

Tharraing siad an imlíne ar dtús le peann luaidhe. Ansin, thug mé dóibh samplaí péint – ionas go mbeadh na dathanna uilig acu – agus d’úsáid siad pollairí chun ciorcail bheaga a ghearradh amach. Labhair muid faoin tábhacht a bhaineann le dathanna dorcha agus geala a úsáid le chéile.

They drew the outline first, with pencil. Then I gave them paint samples – to take in all of the colours – and they used hole punchers to cut out  small circles. We discussed the importance of using different shades of colours together.

D’úsáid na páistí gliú ansin chun na ciorcail bheaga a ghreamú ag an ealaíon. D’úsáid cuid acu a méara, d’úsáid cuid acu bun pinn, agus cuid eile bun scuab péint. Ghlac sé am ach tasc suaimhneach a bhí ann. Chuireamar an DD d’ár gceol cóir ar siúl agus chan siad leis fad is a bhí siad ag obair.

The children then used glue to stick the miniature circles to their artwork. Some used their fingers, some used the end of a pen, others the reverse end of a paintbrush. It took time but was quite a calming activity. We played the CD of our choir pieces in the background and they all sang along.

Chun iad a chríochnú, chuir siad imlíne dubh leis ionas go seasfadh amach na cruthanna agus siad an sásta leis na ‘torthaí’ go bhfuair siad. Seo ceann nó dhó.

To finish them, most added a black outline so that the shapes would be clear and they were all very happy with the ‘fruits’ of their labours. Here’s one or two.
