Kindergarten artists worked hard creating their circle trees. After learning about shape, they had to cut, draw and stamp circles to create their trees. They did a fabulous job! Their artwork was on display in the hallways during conferences, and is on display at the Artsonia website.
Georgetown artists in grades 1-3 began their first project of the school year with a fun little line, shape, and color review – The Button Project. Their designs began with a button or fuzzy pom-pom of their choice; they then created a radial design using lines and shapes around their buttons and pom-poms. Check out their fabulous designs!
The button project was inspired by a project from the blog Fine Lines – see it here.
Fourth Grade artists have been reviewing the art elements of line, shape, color, and texture as they create these great feather masks. They also brushed up on their shading skills as they explored color combinations for their feathers.
Everyone enjoyed looking through my feather collection for pattern and color ideas!
Fifth Grade artists have been reviewing the art elements as they design their silhouettes. After briefly discussing silhouettes and recalling that the traditional silhouette is an outline without features on the inside, we began jazzing up our own silhouettes. I traced each student’s features and then they got busy using shape, color, line, and texture to fill in their silhouette.
I was thrilled to see many of my 5th graders refer to their sketchbooks for Zentangle ideas to fill their silhouettes.
A few finished pieces – they all turned out so great! This is a project that I haven’t done in a number of years – my 5th graders really enjoyed working on their silhouettes.
First Grade artists have been learning about Pablo Picasso and cubism. We found many shapes and colors in Picasso’s “Three Musicians” painting – and everyone enjoyed finding the dog hidden with the musicians!
We created our own versions of the Three Musicians, adding texture to our background and lots of colorful shapes.
