Middle School Students Create Reproduction of Masterpiece
Middle School students just finished a "puzzle reproduction" of Georges Seurat's pointillist masterpiece "Sunday
on La Grande Jatte." Two classes of sixth, seventh, and eighth grade
students painted the large mural, which contains 186 squares. They made
all the colors with only red, blue, yellow and white paint and used
Seurat's principle of optical mixing – the juxtaposition of different
colored dots to create the illusion of outdoor light. Stop by the art
room and see their work.
