Georgetown artists, are you ready for another school year to begin? Mr. Rob has the Art Room all polished up and ready for us to…well…. get out the messy materials and get started making more art.
The wooden mannequins are dusted off and ready to greet you…along with Mona Lisa!
Don’t forget to stop by the Art Room during Georgetown’s Open House Tuesday, August 30 from 6:30-7:30 PM. In the meantime, remember to…
See you soon, friends!
Flashback to June 2015 and our “Just Write” school wide writing celebration. Found this little “Just Write” beauty on my camera – thanks Amelia for a fabulous tutorial on glazing pinch pots!
My second graders are finishing up these beautiful flowers with big bugs. They drew a large flower and then studied pictures of bugs to complete their bug drawings.
Painting the background with watercolors.
We also learned a fancy new art word: ANALOGOUS. These are colors that are next to each other on the color wheel; second graders learned that the colors who are “neighbors” on the color wheel mix together nicely because they are closely related. They blended their flower petals with oil pastels, carefully checking the color wheel for their best analogous colors to blend.
Special thanks to my colleague Mrs. Persch for this project idea!
I CAN: draw a large realistic insect; tell a friend my favorite analogous colors; blend colors using oil pastel.
Third Grade artists have been working on a colorful architecture project in the style of American folk artist Heather Galler. They learned that Galler is inspired by the things she loves, including animals, flowers, and houses. After examining Galler’s house paintings from the New Orleans French Quarter and noticing the many details on these beautiful homes, they created their own “double gallery” New Orleans houses.

Georgetown Galler inspired houses – aren’t they fabulous?
See more of our 3rd Grade Galler Houses at our ARTSONIA on line art gallery here.
I CAN: tell a friend three facts about New York folk artist Heather Galler; create an architectural house drawing in the style of Galler; Use color, line, shape, and pattern in my work.
Shhhh…Georgetown artists have been creating some special art for their Moms this week. Here’s a teeny peek at their Mother’s Day surprises.
