New Winter Art Projects from G-Town

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.

Kudos to these fellow art teachers for our project inspiration:

Grinches

Second Grade artists have been enjoying our Grinch project.  We drew them with Sharpie markers and added grinch green color to his face, using our understanding of shading and value that we developed this fall with our pumpkin project.  They also drew a fancy border around Mr. Grinch and made it smaller than his head so he “popped out” of the picture frame.  We finished up with a little printmaking with tempera paint dipped in bottle caps for a fun frame.Grinch Grinch Grinch
