Our final art show selections….due to technical difficulties it has taken me a bit longer to get these posted!
Our 2009 Spring Art Show continues through Thursday, April 30th!
Tonight, April 29th, we celebrate with our artists from Georgetown Elementary and Bauer Elementary. Stop by Park Elementary this evening, grab a bag of popcorn, and enjoy looking at over 900 pieces of fabulous artwork created by our Hudsonville Students in grades Pre-Kindergarten through 12!
We have had an incredible attendance so far at our art show – we saw 600 visitors on Monday night, and our clicker-counter stopped at 800 visitors on Tuesday evening!
Ninth Annual Student Art Show
Where: Park Elementary, 5525 Park Avenue, Hudsonville
When: 5:30 – 7:30 PM
Show continues through Thursday, April 30th.
Our 5th Grade artists have been working hard to complete their “cone people”. This recycle project uses cast-off cardboard yarn cones, and old string for the hair. They created faces and hands from model magic. And…as a tie-in to Georgetown’s upcoming “Just Write” celebration, we have given our cone people something to say – they are all holding a sign.
Shown is one of our final art show selections – a few more cone people will be featured very soon!

Here are more selections for our upcoming Hudsonville Student Art Show!
Grades 3 and 4 have finished their clay projects, and we have some very excited artists who have had their clay masterpieces selected for display in our upcoming Hudsonville Student Art Show in April. Here are third graders with their coil pots, and fourth graders with their wall pockets. Congratulations artists!
Our Fourth Graders recently finished up their study of French Impressionist artist Edgar Degas. They learned that Degas was interested in capturing movement, which is one of the reasons he chose to draw ballet dancers. Our fourth graders learned several ways to draw human figures – quick gesture drawings, drawing wooden mannequins to understand body proportion, and drawing from life as they posed for each other.
Their completed project features mannequin drawings done in grease pencil along with a portrait of Edgar Degas. Here are four masterpieces that will be included in our upcoming April Hudsonville Student Art Show!
