Georgetown Artists Bring You…Spring Bunnies!

We’ve been all about the bunnies in first and second grade here at Georgetown.  What’s not to love about these hoppers?!

First graders painted a bright background and used their best cutting and glueing skills to add their bunnies on top.

Second graders worked on their drawing skills (and patience!) to create these cuties.

This 2nd grade project has been all over Pinterest, so I’m not sure who to credit…but we sure did enjoy it!

Parents…these bunnies will show up on ARTSONIA ….soon-ish!

Colorful Carpets

Fourth grade artists have been learning about the beautiful woven carpets found in the Middle Eastern countries of Iran, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia.  Inspired by these carpets, they printed shapes and patterns with black paint and then colored their carpets with bright oil pastels.

These bold and bright colors just make me smile.

First Graders Visit Egypt

Georgetown firsties are learning about the art and culture of Egypt.  We found many of shapes and mysterious Egyptian symbols on the beautiful mummy case of Lady Teshat.  First graders learned that Lady Teshat was the daughter of the treasurer of the Temple of Amon at Thebes.  Her detailed burial mask gives us a clue as to how she may have looked as a young girl.

After experimenting with some practice paintings, first graders painted these fancy mummy cases.

Preparing our background with a little colored chalk.

 I just love how each painting has a personality all its own.

Of course the best part was selecting just the right jewel to adorn their paintings!

Parents – you’ll find these portraits on our ARTSONIA on-line art gallery soon.

Clay, Wonderful Clay!

Ask any Georgetown artist to tell you about their favorite art project, and the answer will always be…anything clay!  Here’s a peek at some of the clay projects we are working on.

  

Fifth grade knee bowls – roll a slab and form a bowl on your knee.  Who knew your knee could be a perfect bowl shape?

 

Fourth grade slab picture frames.

  

Third grade coil pots – we’ll squeeze some clay through a garlic press and add it to the top to create a bird nest!

Second grade slab houses – can’t wait to add the texture and details.

First grade pinch pots with texture.

Kindergarten texture necklaces – they can’t wait to finish these and wear them home!

Soon we’ll be adding more details to finish up these projects, and then the firing begins.
