Crayon Dot Painting

Crayon Dot Painting craft

Show budding artists how to paint with a technique called Pointillism. Look at paintings by Georges Seurat for inspiration.

  • 1.

    Cover your table with newspaper. Draw a very light sketch of your subject on the paper with a Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencil.

  • 2.

    Pour a small amount of Crayola Washable Kid's Paint onto each produce tray. You can mix colors on these trays to get a nice variety of colors, too.

  • 3.

    Use the flat, circular end of a Crayola Crayon as your painting tool. Dip your crayon into paint, then firmly press the wet bottom on paper. The crayon will leave a round dot of paint. Use a different crayon bottom for each color you use so your colors will stay fresh and bright.

  • 4.

    When finished, stand back, and you'll see that all of the dots blend together to make solid areas of color. No lines are needed because the dots give the impression of the picture. Hang up your work, and have a show for your friends and family!
