Georgetown artists, are you ready for another school year to begin? Mr. Rob has the Art Room all polished up and ready for us to…well…. get out the messy materials and get started making more art.
The wooden mannequins are dusted off and ready to greet you…along with Mona Lisa!
Don’t forget to stop by the Art Room during Georgetown’s Open House Tuesday, August 30 from 6:30-7:30 PM. In the meantime, remember to…
See you soon, friends!
Georgetown Fourth Grade artists recently finished a huge figure drawing unit. They began by looking at the art of Edgar Degas, who was a master at drawing the human figure and known for his pastel drawings of ballerinas.
Then they tried their own figure drawings…modeling for each other and doing a series of quick gesture drawings in their sketchbooks.
Next we moved on to drawing wooden mannequin figures!
Finally – they created a background by straw blowing paint and outlining their beautiful blotches…and adding their figure drawings and other practice forms on their background. Magnificent!
* Identify the work of Edgar Degas
* Capture movement in a figure by gesture drawing
