Rizzi Birds

First grade artists have been learning about American pop artist James Rizzi.  Rizzi was known for his colorful, childlike art style and crazy images – his art is a favorite with Georgetown’s first graders!

We began by looking at Rizzi’s art and talking about all the activity happening in his paintings.  First graders noticed the many symbols that Rizzi uses, and had fun looking for some his favorites – happy suns, hearts, birds, apples, and peace signs.

First graders painted a Rizzi-style bird and added their own symbols to finish their cool and colorful birds.

I can: Tell a friend what a SYMBOL is; draw a Rizzi bird; use mindful paint and gluing on my project.
