If you've ever looked at an abstract painting in an art gallery and thought, "My kid could have done that!" you're not alone! But you've probably never strolled passed a Van Gogh or Seurat and thought the same thing. Well, don't underestimate your preschooler! This activity will introduce your child to a form of art called pointillism, which uses many small dots of primary colors to make a painting. It's fun to study because it's easy and challenging at the same time — your child will get to express her creative side as she learns about primary colors and different art forms!
