Fifth Grade O’Keeffe Flowers

Fifth Grade O’Keeffe Flowers

Georgetown 5th grade artists explored the art of American artist Georgia O’Keeffe.  Their large flower paintings in the style of O’Keeffe are beauties!

 They began by identifying the art elements that O’Keeffe used to create her large “Red Poppy” painting. We discussed organic shapes, texture, line, value, color, and of course…”filling space in a beautiful way” like O’keeffe.

Their pieces are painted with tempera paints and black glue was used for line and detail.

Learning Targets: Identify art elements used in O’Keeffe’s work; retell two facts about O’Keeffe; create an art piece that fills the picture space.

Parents!  Check out your 5th Grader’s flower painting at our ARTSONIA art gallery HERE!

Kindergarten Winter Elmos

Need a smile?  Take a look at the Elmos that Georgetown Kinders created!

Their Elmos began with the paint brushes that Kindergarteners designed in Mrs. Totten’s STEAM class. Later in art class, they explored the kinds of lines and marks their brushes made as they painted their red Elmo heads.

After adding Elmo’s face and a winter hat, a whole lotta Elmo cuteness happened in the art room!

  

Parents, visit Artsonia, our on-line art Gallery to see your child’s Elmo HERE.

Good Stuff From The Art Room

Georgetown artists have been busy, busy busy!  Here’s a look at some of their latest creations!

Sweet little oinkers from first grade…exploring 2D and 3D concepts with fun “Pig In A Puddle” landscapes.

Second grade Van Gogh landscapes with a warm color “Starry Night” sky – gorgeous!

Fourth grade abstract paintings in the style of Kandinsky’s “Several Circles No. 323”.  Love these bright oil pastel and watercolor beauties!

More piggies, starry nights, and abstract circles can be found on ARTSONIA, Georgetown’s on-line art gallery.  Visit HERE!

Third Grade Robots

Third grade artists created these fun robots by tracing around some interesting objects.  They were surprised to learn that outlet plug covers and old watercolor trays could be used as stencils – especially fine for creating robot parts!

They focused on the art elements of line, shape, and color to finish up their “bots”.

Visit Georgetown’s Artsonia On-Line Art Museum to see more amazing robots! ARTSONIA

Our ArtPrize Rocks Are Home!

Whew, what a crazy ArtPrize ride it has been!  Our project began last May with the delivery of 600 rocks that our Georgetown kiddos washed and then painted with white acrylic paint.  Fast forward to September and two gloriously messy and busy weeks spent turning our rocks into painted fish.

And then…our little fish swam off to ArtPrize to join 5,000 other fish created by Hudsonville Public School’s artists in grades PK-12. And WOW can you believe it…we WON the ArtPrize Youth Entry!  Many, many thanks to our parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and friends for voting for our “You Be You” entry – we are beyond grateful and so excited to accept the $5,000 entry prize!  The Hudsonville art teachers will meet very soon to decide how we will honor our students with the ArtPrize funds.

What’s next?  Mrs. Brouwer and her trusty Jessie Jeep lugged 8 crates filled with Georgetown’s rocks back to G-Town….and with the help of Rob, the Most Amazing Custodian in the World and Mr Kooiker’s 4th Grade class, we permanently installed the rocks along our front entryway today.

We still have some tweaking to do, and Mrs. B. needs to make a sign…but stop by Georgetown and visit your rock. You’ll love it!

Little Owls

Kinders have been busy working on their first ever “real” art project in the art room. We talked about shapes and drew shapes in the air with our magic invisible finger markers.  And then this happened!  Aren’t their little owls adorable?

Our little owls got even cuter this week when we added a fancy background with oil pastel stars and a night time sky.  Kindergarteners became painting experts as they tip-toed their brushes across the paper – no bad hair days for these paintbrushes!
