Pointillism is a great artistic technique for children to use.  Several different ways will allow students to experience this technique.  The paper at the left suggests you have students punch out various colors of paper with a hole punch and then create a picture by gluing the colored circles.  You can help limit the glue by giving students glue in plastic gallon milk jug LIDS.  Add to the lid a toothpick for students to get the glue and you have less of a mess.  ANOTHER way to experience pointillism is with a pencil eraser or ear swab dipped in paint.  Students love this option.  For younger students you might wish to give them simple outlined coloring pictures.  They can then concentrate on painting the points with various colors instead of the actual picture.
