A Look Ahead….And Back!

If you are visiting the Art Room Blog because you will be new to Georgetown Elementary in the fall….WELCOME!  Please explore our art blog to see what we create – and don’t forget to take a look at the over 6,000 works of art on display in our on-line Art Gallery, ARTSONIA as well.

As our school year comes to a close, here’s a look back at what it’s all about….the annual HPS Student Art Show. Check out our Georgetown artists and their beautiful smiles!

Mrs. Brouwer will be at the Georgetown Open Library on Tuesday, July 15 from 10-12.  Stop in for a visit!

We’ll see you in the fall!  Have a wonderful summer everyone!

Love – Mrs. Brouwer & Mrs. Persch

A busy week in the art room….

Whew, we’ve been busy this week!  Most classes are finishing up projects related to our recent study and review of color.  Fifth graders began some beautiful winter landscapes, and fourth graders are continuing their study of Edgar Degas and focusing on drawing figures.  Third graders began a project in the style of “Blue Dog” artist George Rodrigue, while first and second graders worked on projects relating to colors…warm/cool cityscapes for 2nd grade and primary/secondary vehicles for first grade.  And kindergartners explored collage as they created very cool penguins!  Here are some pictures of our week!


Many thanks to our volunteer artwork hangers!

I want to give a big shout out to the many parents who volunteered to come in over the last two weeks to hang new artwork in our hallways…as you can see by the pictures, our halls are again filled with creativity and color!  Next week our 2/3 hallway will also have new creations as our second graders finish up their warm/cool cities and I get the artwork ready to display!

Special thanks to Sandy Tibbe, Amanda Troyer, Shelly Telfor, Karman Vanderstel, Jennifer Walters, Heather Persch, and Julie Randolph for generously spending several hours on ladders to beautify our halls!
