Artist of the Week: Pointillism

This week’s artist is Jake. I was able to snag this photo of him just before we got to the bus stop.

His artwork is a pointillist rendition of a sunflower that he made at school.

I really like this piece. The neat thing was it, along with many of his classmates’ efforts, was featured at the recent countywide Art and Science Fair. Not all of the children have a piece selected for the fair. With just over 56,000 students in the school district, it is just not possible. So you can imagine that we were very pleased that both boys had art featured this year (Nate’s hasn’t come home yet).

Jake is very proud of his effort. He told me that he also had a lot of fun creating this piece.
