Little Monsters

First Grade artists had monstrous fun creating these monsters on a tall brick wall.  We sponge printed the wall and then drew our silly monsters up on our wall.  We read lots of monster-y books for drawing inspiration – these were two of our favorites.

Did you know that you can listen to a fun song from “There Was An Old Monster”?  My kiddos LOVE it!  Listen to it here.  Don’t let the ants get in your pants!


Drawing our monsters, and some pretty cute finished little monsters.


Parents, you’ll find this project on ARTSONIA too!

Piles of Pumpkins

My fourth grade artists recently brainstormed some of the many reasons that artists make art, including: to make money (!), to express yourself, to relax, and….to give as a gift.

Since we will soon be hosting students from Raey Guang Elementary, our sister school in Pingtung, Taiwan, we put our creative abilities to work and made these fun bookmarks to welcome our friends to Georgetown.

Our friends will be visiting over Halloween so they can experience this American holiday.  We hope they enjoy our Halloween bookmarks!


Kindergarten Rectangle Review

Kindergarten artists had a little review on drawing rectangles as they created fun “Frankie” and “Frankette” portraits.  We practiced drawing rectangles in the air with our imaginary markers (short line, loooong line, short line, looooong line!) and then set to work finding and drawing the rectangles on Frankie’s head, teeth, and neck bolts.  We added a zig-zag hair line, texture crayon work for color, and finished with yellow construction paper eyes.
