Parents! Don’t forget to stop by the art room during conferences next week to pick up your kid’s artwork!
Georgetown artists have been busy this week getting their artwork ready for parents to take home. After sorting all of their art pieces, they learned how to CRITIQUE (talk about) and CURATE (choose one best piece) their work.
Students focused on using their art words as they talked about each other’s work. It was so neat to hear them discuss lines, warm/cool colors, and why they chose certain colors or shapes for their pieces.
After critiquing their artwork, students “curated” their art and chose their best piece, seeking the advice of their friends to make their decision.
Students then explained why they chose their piece as they wrote an Artist Statement. They also did an art tour around the classroom to see everyone’s favorite pieces.
Our “Critique and Curate” day was a good way to review the projects, artists, and techniques we’ve learned so far this year as well as preparing it to send home!
Michigan Arts Standards: I can analyze, describe, and evaluate works of art, including my own art.
