Welcome to Georgetown’s Art Room Blog! Thanks for stopping by.
I have taught art at Hudsonville Public Schools since 1998. Showing children how to see the world around them through artist’s eyes is my passion!
When I am not dreaming up new art projects for my students to explore, I like to:
* read (mysteries, aritst biographies, history) * paint * make collages * create with fiber – spin wool from our sheep, knit, weave * go camping in the U.P. * garden * play with my 15 grandchildren * walk our dogs Cocoa Belle, Ruby Jean, and Pachino * draw * paint * travel with Mr. Brouwer * grow giant tomatoes * rock in my chair on the gazebo and watch the birds *
I live on a farm with Mr. B. and an ever changing assortment of animals, including Highlander cattle, sheep, pigeons, peacocks, guinea fowl, dogs, four mules, a yellow canary named Opie….the list goes on!
Art facts about me: my favorite colors are blue and purple; favorite artist – Georgia O’Keeffe; favorite subject to paint – trees and barns.
Prize winning tomato…..and Mr. B. on “Big Blue”!
Here are some of the things I make with the wool from our sheep. You can also see more of my work on my Valley View Farm Fibers blog.
Don’t forget to visit our on-line art gallery ARTSONIA. You can see more of our projects and artwork from every student at Georgetown – we have over 13,000 pieces of art on display!
