New Winter Art Projects from G-Town

The blustery cold weather has inspired our Georgetown artists to create some fun “wintery” projects.  We are also starting our study and review of color, and these projects are reinforcing our understanding of color families such as primary and secondary colors, and  warm/cool colors.

First grade artists are working on these nice warm/cool holiday trees.

Second grade artists are finishing up some awesome grinches, focusing on shading and warm/cool color combinations.

Third graders are enjoying exploring different color families as they create these colorful candy canes!

Fourth and Fifth grade artists created visual interest with line, shape, and color as they created their Nutty Nutcrackers.

Parents…these projects can be found on our on-line art gallery, ARTSONIA.

Kudos to these fellow art teachers for our project inspiration:

Second Grade Matisse Windows

Second grade artists have been exploring the collage art of Henri Matisse.  They learned that in 1949, Matisse began one of the greatest projects of his life…a chapel for the Dominican sisters in the town of Vence, France.  He designed every part of the Chapelle du Rosaire, including the beautiful stained glass windows.  Our Matisse window collages are inspired by his “Christmas Eve” piece, and the second graders worked hard to create an eye path, using color and shape, that leads the eye around the collage.

As our assessment for this project, second graders did a “Gallery Walk” around the room, admiring each other’s work.  They wrote comments about the pieces they were viewing, and there were great conversations about eye path, shape, and color!

Still Celebrating Student Art Creations!

Even though the school year is winding down, we are still recognizing students who create outstanding pieces.  Three of our Georgetown Elementary students have had their artwork selected for display in our Administration Building for the 2012-13 school year.

I’ve heard that the arrival of new student artwork each year at the Administration Building creates quite a buzz, with lots of good-natured competition amongst the staff as they choose their favorite pieces to display in their offices!

Congratulations to Second Grade artist Elaina, and Fourth Grade artists, Mackenzie and Emma!

Emma’s “Feather Mask”

Mackenzie’s “Still Life With Zens”
