Springy Folk Art Birds

Third grade artists are dreaming of spring while creating these colorful Folk Art birds.  Working in the style of American Folk Artist Heather Galler, their birds reflect the many patterns and bright colors that Galler loves to use in her art.

Love the way these artists have arranged their markers in rainbow order so they can select just the right colors for their project!

I CAN goals: compare and contrast folk art with other works of art; use pattern and color in the style of Heather Galler.

 

Spring Projects

Georgetown artists in grades 1, 2, and 3 have been creating colorful, blooming projects to celebrate warmer weather.  And, bonus…these projects have become beautiful Mother’s Day gifts.  Visit our on-line art gallery ARTSONIA to see more of these fabulous projects!

First Grade artists created these beautiful flowers in a fancy mosaic vase.

Thanks to Archoo! for this project idea!

Third Grade artists created these fabulous collage landscapes while studying the Folk Art of American artist Heather Galler.  Each of their masterpieces was photographed and added to a special card for a lovely Mother’s Day gift.
