Pointillism-to a degree. Painting with dashes

Each student chose a classmate to model. The condition was the model had to show some sort of movement and cropping was encouraged. Most student could probably use a lesson or two in picture taking as many photos weren't initially framed well. I would change that aspect of the assignment next time, maybe a short lesson on photography. After some practice they were starting to get it. The next step was to make a drawing form they photo they took. The final part was to apply paint. The students were not allowed to mix paints and only could apply colors side-by-side, think the Pointillist Movement and color theorist Gerorge Seurat. This was to test the theory that eyes will naturally blend colors together. Below is my student work.
