Parents – are you wondering where we are hiding all your kiddos art? And when we’ll be sending it home? Well…we have it safely stowed away in the art room.
Instead of picking up artwork during conferences this coming week, we will neatly bag it up and have it available for pick up in mid-May. We will notify you of the pick up date in May!
In the meantime, you can check out our projects right here on our Art Blog. Can’t wait to see your student’s artwork? Visit our Artsonia Kids Art Museum – we have over 2,800 student art pieces uploaded already this year!
Visit www.artsonia.com (here’s the LINK) . Contact me (email@example.com) if you need your child’s Artsonia key code access.
Check out our student artwork on Artsonia, our on-line art gallery! We are busy uploading winter and holiday themed student artwork – perfect for a special holiday gift! Your child’s artwork can be printed on a variety of items – from mugs to holiday cards. And…20% of your purchase goes directly to our Georgetown Art Department.
Here’s Sara14000’s poinsettia piece – visit our gallery for more gift ideas!
Our floors are shined up and teachers have been busy getting their classrooms ready for a new school year. I’m excited to tell you that we also have nine NEW pieces of student artwork that have been added to our permanent collection! Our wonderful Mr. Rob has installed the pieces throughout our building – take a few minutes when you are visiting Georgetown and see if you can locate them!
Hint: one of the largest pieces we’ve ever had framed, by Cotey S., is hanging in the cafeteria – you will be amazed at Cotey’s skill in creating a work of art in the style of Georgia O’Keeffe. (See more about our Georgia Project here.)

O’Keeffe “Ram’s Head”
Here are the rest of the newly framed pieces (sorry about the glare from the lighting – when you see the pieces in person, I promise they look FAB.)
HUGE thanks to our amazing Georgetown PTC for funding our Permanent Collection at Georgetown – your support is truly appreciated!
Last week we had the privilege of sending another Georgetown work of art to our friends from our Sister School in Raey Guang, Taiwan.
This is our third piece of artwork that has traveled to Taiwan – we hope our friends enjoy this Still Life that was created by 5th Grader Matthew. Matthew shared that the best part about his “Still Life With Zentangles” was that after learning how to draw zentangles, he created his own zentangle designs to add to his piece.
More of these Zentangle Still Life pieces can be found in our Artsonia Student Gallery!
Here’s a look at the work of our Hudsonville student artists who were featured at today’s Art In The Park in Hudsonville! It was great to see our student’s work on display along with the work of photographers, painters, jewelry and clay artists.
I ran into Mason, who was happy to pose with his “Action Jackson” portrait!
Kindergarten and First Grade artists recently finished their clay projects in the art room. Our kinders learned how to make a pinch pot, (roll a ball and stick your thumb in and pinch the edges!) and then created teacups and saucers using their newly learned pinch pot technique. Afterwards we read “Miss Spider’s Tea Party” to celebrate our tea cup expertise!
First Graders created clay turtles using a “pinch and pull” technique. After making a smooth clay oval, they pinched and pulled the clay to create a head, tail, and legs. Texture was added to the turtle shell by pressing it with a bottle cap.
Our young artists will be bringing their clay masterpieces home soon!
