Our first big art projects this year are all about NAMES! Each grade level is learning a different way to write their names – 1st and 2nd grades are learning BUBBLE LETTERS, 3rd is learning BLOCK LETTERS, and grades 4 and 5 are learning how to write their name in CURSIVE. Students then added the art elements of line, shape, and color to turn their names into a work of art.
Grades 1 & 2 bubble letter designs
Grade 3 block letter designs
Grade 4 cursive writing designs
Grade 5 cursive writing designs
We also spent some time looking at how other artists use words and letters in their art pieces. We looked at the words that Faith Ringgold includes around her Story Quilts.
Andy Warhol’s “100 Cans” and Juan Miro’s Hirondelle/Amour also brought some interesting discussions about words found in art.
“I Can” Goals:
I can write my name in block, bubble, or cursive letters.
I can talk about different works of art.
I can use the art elements of line, shape, and color to create a work of art using my own name.

Third grade artists created these beautifully detailed winter trees. On a cold snowy day, they looked at the trees outside the art room windows, drawing the many branches that they saw. A little painted snow….and we have a winter view from the art room!
Many thanks to The Class Teacher Valentina for this lesson inspiration!
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.
