Congratulations, G-Town artists!
We are busy starting new projects….and finishing up some pieces for display in our hallways. First grade artists continued exploring pattern and got to do a little painting as they created these fun pattern fish. They found out that a fish is pretty easy to draw, too!
Third grade artists learned about two important American artists – “Action Jackson” Pollock and the creator of the Blue Dog series, Louisana artist George Rodrigue. Their colored pencil dogs are framed with our version of a Jackson Pollock drip painting, created with string dipped in paint. They really enjoyed the painting process; to quote one of my third graders: “This was the best project ever!”
Painting in the style of Jackson Pollock’s “Autumn Rhythm”.
Parents…this “Blue Dog” project can be found on our Artsonia on-line art gallery. Students have also written artist statements about their work, so be sure to check them out!
