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.
“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.
As the school year winds down, we are recognizing and celebrating the work of a few more Georgetown artists.
Kiara’s “Winter Trees” art piece will be featured in 2015 during School Board Recognition month. Her work will be displayed in the board meeting room and enjoyed by our school board members. Congrats, Kiara!
Two Georgetown masterpieces will also be on loan for the upcoming school year for display at our Administration Building. Congratulations to Siri and Zach – your artwork is framed and looks fabulous over at the Admin building!
Great job, Georgetown artists!
Fourth grade artists created these beautiful bowls filled with cacti during their study of Mexico. This project incorporated several important art goals: learning about zentangles and creating a zentangle bowl; learning the names and drawing a variety of cactus plants; the use of shading techniques to create a realistic cactus plant; and creating visual interest with the use of overlapping and a variety of sizes and colors in their project.
Their careful drawings were outlined with permanent markers and shaded with crayons, and the giant box of 96 provided many different greens for shading! Final details were added with a watercolor and salt sprinkled background. We love the results!
Parents – this project can be found at our on-line art gallery ARTSONIA!
Thanks to Room9 Art for this project inspiration – we loved it!
And, funny thing….Jamestown Elementary, one of our sister schools here at Hudsonville Public, did a similar project – check out their awesome pieces too!
Here are our most recent District Art Show selections. The show is coming up soon; visit our HPS Art Program website for more information!
Fourth grade artists have really been flexing their art muscles this month! Their latest creations combine their understanding of the abstract art of Mondrian and Kandinsky, plus their recent study of color families, AND our school goal of improving number sense and fractions. Whew!
After viewing work by Mondrian and Kandinsky, students discussed how both artists might have divided up their picture space as they created “Broadway Boogie Woogie” and “Several Circles No. 323″.
After folding their paper into halves, thirds, and quarters, students carefully planned where to place their lines and shapes to create a strong abstract composition. Color was added after considering color families, and a printed border pulled their pieces together. The final result? Stunning!
See more of our abstract pieces at our ARTSONIA on-line art museum!
