Kindergarten artists studied the art of Eric Carle. They read many of his books and learned how he created his art. After painting papers in either warm or cool colors, the artists cut their papers to create these Spring butterflies.

What a winter we have been having here at Georgetown Elementary! We are so ready for Spring, but Kindergarten artists decided that March has come in like a lion. To celebrate, they created these great lion collages. Lions were fun to create, but we are hoping that March goes out like a lamb!
Second grade artists have created a new work of art based on a book by Gerald McDermott, “Jabuti the Tortoise”. Jabuti is a tortoise from the Amazon Rain Forest who loves to play tricks on his friends. Second graders enjoyed the story, but the best part was creating their own tortoises!
Creating the chalk border for our Jabuti drawings, and the finished pieces.

Georgetown’s third grade artists finished up their study of Mexico and South America with an exciting mixed-media project. They began by learning about the Ojo de Dios weavings found in Mexico, and created their own Ojo weaving. Once they got the hang of weaving their Ojo’s, the begged to make more – they have been promised another weaving session very soon!
Ojo de Dios weavings
The Ojo weavings were added to the top of the 3rd grader’s beautiful drawings of a Guatemalan Quetzal bird. The brightly colored Quetzal is the national bird of Guatemala and lives in the cloud forests of Central America. Third graders worked hard to carefully shade and color their quetzals – aren’t their finished pieces wonderful?
See more of our quetzal project on ARTSONIA here.
First grade artists have been learning about the art and culture of Mexico. After viewing Mrs. Persch’s brightly colored Mexican blanket, they created their own colorful blankets filled with oil pastel patterns.
We decided our blankets needed something extra…so first graders added a big green lizard sunning himself on their blankets!
Here we are, working on our blankets and lizards. Our finished lizards are below – first graders really worked on their scissor skills while cutting out their lizards. They had to be really careful not to cut off the legs or tail!
We are having “catch up” days in the art room, finishing up projects left from our snow days last month. As artists finished, they had an opportunity to draw these fun snakes. We read Craig Frazier’s “Stanley Mows the Lawn” and searched for Hank the Snake in his book. After looking at Ed Emberly’s snake drawing ideas, artists slithered to their seats and began their sketches!
We’re getting ready for our 8th Annual Talent Show at Georgetown. A few students found some extra art room time to help out with Talent Show posters.
Students in grades 3, 4, & 5….start practicing! The Talent Show is Thursday, April 3rd!
Here’s a 2013 flashback – 5th Graders doing a little Harlem Shake to get everyone fired up for the Talent Show!
Here are our most recent District Art Show selections. The show is coming up soon; visit our HPS Art Program website for more information!
