As part of our art topic last term Year 3 explored the artist Georges Seurat with a focus on his first major painting, Bathers at Asnieres (1884). It was a large painting of people relaxing near the water at Asnieres. Seurat began to explore the science of optics and colour. The children also carried out some experiments, with Mrs.Holmes, to experience how we see colour. Seurat found that, rather than mixing the colours of paint on a palette, he could place tiny dots of different colours next to each other on the canvas and the eye would mix the colours. Today we call this Pointillism. Each child has produced their own interpretation of Bathers at Asnieres and the results are fantastic. Well done Year 3!
