About this deal

We also thought it might be fun to create an autumn tree with our autumn leaves. So my youngest created a simple tree shape using his dabbers and we cut out some of our dotty autumn leaves. The leaves look very effective when they are cut out! She did comment that one of the challenges was trying to get the dots to look more consistent and she marvelled at how hard an impressionist painting must be to do, with all those dots combined together to create more detail like shadows and form. My daughter also joined in with the dotty craze. She started with autumn leaves and played around a bit with different colours. We have been talking a lot about which colours work well together. This is a guest post from Shelly. Shelly is a home educating parent of two child ren aged 8 and 10. She blogs at ofamily learning together where she shares ideas on the different learning activities that they do including lots of hand-on maths, arts and crafts and anything else that is part of their home educating lifestyle. My son wanted to do some painting but he asked to do something a bit different from “normal painting”– which I must admit stumped me. "Painting that is not normal painting". I had to think about that one for a while! But it just so happens I was busy reading an Impressionist book so I thought ... what about painting using dots instead of brush strokes? I suggested using ear buds but both my kids opted for normal paint brushes. You just need to make sure the paint brush has a nice pointy head – we found our newer paint brushes worked better.

After the leaves she wanted to continue and decided to try a flower. Again colour was a big factor with her. She wanted to use purple, yellow and orange but after testing out the three colours together on a scrap piece of paper she decided that she did not like the purple and orange right next to each other. This has been one of the art points we are trying to work on now that she is a bit older; to first plan your colours before you just start applying them. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the various items, so just use the comments form at the bottom of any of the galleries to send me your thoughts and requests.Children develop dispositions for learning such as curiosity cooperation confidence creativity commitment enthusiasm persistence imagination and reflexivity

Are you looking for a painting activity with a difference? Why not try some "dotty art" like Shelly and her kids...
