At the end of the 19th century, painters used a technique called pointillism, a technique in which small, distinct dots of color are applied in patterns to form an image. With Pixel Mosaics, paints and brushes are replaced with pegs, and the end result is stunning.
Choose from dozens of different images of animals, great works of art, landmarks, landscapes, famous people, even Star Wars celebrities, and print the pattern cards. With just 6 different colors, your child’s Pixel Mosaics creation, when viewed from a distance, will look like it was made of thousands of colors and tones. Makes an elegant wall hanging for your living room, or a fun decoration for his bedroom.
And when you want a change, just dump the pegs back into the box, choose another Pixel Mosaics template and create something new. Pixel Mosaics includes 4 connectable peg boards; 6,800 pegs; and 1 picture frame.

”I have to admit, this project was more involved than I realized, but super clever and fun for my little guy.”Read the Review
This is a good project not only for free creative art-time/play, but also for an older child to make something truly stunning (via the templates)!
My 10-year-old LOVES this and asks me to print photos twice a week! This supplements our Art curriculum, but this has been his FAVORITE part of Art so far this year. I love that the manufacturer gives photos for us to download and use.
This came with our sons 6th grade curriculum. At first he didn’t want to do it but after I told him he could do a dinosaur, he was all for it. We are pleased the way it turned out.
I first ordered for my 2 boys ages 11, 13. They spent time doing a little each day. I wasn't sure how it would come out, while doing project, but the finished product far exceeded our expectations. We just ordered another one for my 17 yr old, who wants one!!!
This is perfect for teaching pointillism! It’s hard to replicate this method, but this product found a way! I like how it takes a long time to make and it truly shows how dedicated an artist has to be using this method!
