Dots are used to make the image in pointillism technique. We used pointillism to create positive and negative clovers. This activity is a great way to introduce pointillism to preschoolers or bigger kids.

- Do A Dot Art markers
- Printer paper
- Shamrock template.
- Print a shamrock template. I could not locate the site from where I took my template. A similar template is available here.
- Cut out the shamrock.
- Attach tape to the shamrock cutout.
- Attach the cutout to another printer paper. The tape will restrict the movement of the cutout. But it will not completely paste the cutout to the paper.
- Let the kid paint the entire paper with Do A Dot Art markers.
- Once the painting is done, slowly remove the shamrock template from the paper. Discard the pieces of tape. Enjoy the beautifully painted shamrock!
- The paper has the negative clover.Positive and negative paintings of clover are done using pointillism technique. Aren’t they simple and beautiful? What do you think about them?
